Visiting the exhibition of the Flamenco Dance Museum costs about 10 ¤ per participant. However, when visiting the Flamenco Dance Museum, it is important to keep in mind that more than a museum you will find a space for the dissemination and conservation of the arts of flamenco.

This means that, in addition to the usual exhibition, other types of activities take place in this space. Let's see the main ones.

Tickets to visit the Museum of Flamenco Dance.

As I mentioned the tickets to the Museum of Flamenco Dance for adults is available from 10 € and the reduced admission price is around 8 €. Children between 6 and 12 years old pay 6€ approximately, while children under 6 years old have free access.

All children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult to access the facilities. The single ticket to the museum allows you to enjoy the permanent exhibition displayed in interactive rooms where art is mixed with technology to offer an immersive experience.

Combined show + museum ticket

The combined ticket is designed so you can enjoy the permanent exhibition and also a flamenco show in the heart of Seville.

The price to pay for this experience is about 29€ for the adult ticket; 22€ for the reduced ticket; children between 6 and 12 years old pay about 16€ while children under 6 years old can enter for free.

At the moment there are no guided tours of the Flamenco Dance Museum and it may not be necessary to pay for such an excursion to the exhibition, as the spaces and art installations placed inside are perfectly organized to provide the visitor with an immersive experience.

The exhibitions are also well explained and several languages are included including Spanish, English, French, German, Chinese and Japanese.

Although it is not possible to find guided tours at the moment, there are tickets to the flamenco shows that take place in the museum on excursion search websites such as Hellotickets. The best part? Many times at cheaper prices than buying the ticket at the door. Take advantage!

How to get the tickets for the Flamenco Dance Museum in Seville at the box office

You can buy tickets for the Museum directly at the ticket office located right at the main entrance of the venue. If your interest is just to see the exhibition it is very easy to get a seat: just make sure you arrive at least one hour before the closing time of the exhibition.

But if your interest in visiting the Museum of Flamenco Dance is mainly to attend a flamenco show, it is best to buy your tickets in advance.

The reason? The enclosure dedicated to dance shows are rather small, with the intention of maintaining an intimate and close atmosphere with the viewer, this translates to the need to limit the capacity and usually tickets to the show are sold out very quickly.

If you book online you get cheaper tickets and you avoid this kind of inconvenience.

No, at the moment the tickets to the Flamenco Dance Museum in the city of Seville are not included in any tourist pass of the city.

The Museum of Flamenco Dance in Seville is located on Manuel Rojas Marcos Street, in the heart of the city, occupying what was once an eighteenth century mansion belonging to wealthy families.

The space has been beautifully renovated over the years and due to its strategic location it is easy to find transportation to this area of the city. I list the available options below.

  • Seville Tramway: Seville's public transport service is highly efficient; to get to this area of the city you will have to take the streetcar line to Plaza Nueva. It is located 7 minutes walk from the museum entrance.
  • Public bus: Several public bus lines stop near the museum. The closest ones are the ones that stop at Plaza Encarnación and Plaza Ponce de Léon.
  • Seville tourist bus: the best way to get around the different attractions of the city. The bus has pre-established stops near the different monuments, museums, churches or other points of interest for visitors to the city. A new bus passes every 30 minutes at each of the stops.

Is it advisable to go to the Flamenco Dance Museum with children?

While the Flamenco Dance Museum in Seville is a fully child-friendly place to go, and you will even find that tickets for children under 12 are cheaper and children under 6 get in for free, I find that just attending the museum's permanent exhibition can be boring for the younger ones.

If you visit the city of Seville with children, a more interesting alternative is to buy tickets to the museum combined with the flamenco show, as the act of seeing live and up close dancers and singers can be much more fun for them.

Anyway do not miss the permanent exhibition, although children may not find the historical part interesting, the exhibition of flamenco costumes from all eras is an area of the exhibition that they usually really enjoy.

The Museum of Flamenco Dance in Seville was founded by one of the greatest exponents of this art not only for Spain, but for the world, the famous bailaora Cristina Hoyos.

Another interesting aspect about the museum is its location; the manor house that today serves as an exhibition space was built on the ruins of an ancient Roman temple.

  • Room 5: This exhibition space is composed of a huge semicircular screen where a choreography is presented.
  • Exhibition of costumes: A collection of mythical costumes of the most important dancers in the history of flamenco in Seville.

How much time do you need to visit the Flamenco Dance Museum in Seville?

Again, this aspect will depend mainly on the activities you want to do during your visit to the Flamenco Dance Museum.

If you decide to attend only the exhibition area to see both the permanent collection of the museum and the temporary collections on the second level you will need to reserve an hour to complete the tour.

However, if your main interest is to attend the flamenco show entitled "Sueños Flamencos", you should know that these usually last just over an hour. In this space you will see the presentation of 3 professional dancers, 2 singers and 1 guitarist.

My recommendation is always that your itinerary allows you to do both activities and dedicate at least 2.5 hours to your visit to the Museo del Baile in Seville.

Flamenco Dance Museum opening hours

Depending on the activities you want to do in the museum you should take into consideration two main schedules.

  • Museum opening hours: The museum is open every day from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. At 6:00 p.m. the ticket office closes and the last group of visitors is allowed to enter.
  • Show schedule: The flamenco show takes place every day in small groups and at three different times, at 5:00 pm; at 7:00 pm and the last one at 8:45 pm. The museum management allows the organization of private shows at other times but must be requested in advance.

My recommendation: organize your visit to the Museum of Flamenco Dance to see the exhibition either before the first show of the day or after this show. This way you can make better use of your time and do both activities in one visit.

This option is ideal for people who will be in the city for a short time, such as two days in Seville.

Tips for visiting the Museum of Flamenco Dance in Seville

Here are a few tips to help you organize your visit and have a more enjoyable experience.

  • Organize your tour: This point is especially useful if you buy the shared ticket that includes the visit to the museum and the live flamenco show. I advise you to check the schedule section to make and organize the activities in such a way that you can do both in one visit.
  • Buy your tickets in advance: The flamenco show at the Museo de Baile is held in a small space with limited seating; although it is a very nice way to enjoy the show (as you can appreciate the artists at very close range) the limited seating means that tickets sell out very quickly. There are only three performances per day, so booking in advance is the only way to ensure a seat, especially during the high tourist season in Seville.
  • Observe the calendar of activities before your visit: In addition to being an exhibition space, the Museum of Flamenco Dance in Seville is an area for the dissemination of the arts and the preservation of flamenco culture. Temporary exhibitions or activities such as the Flamenco Poems Show or dance classes are constantly being organized and may be of interest to admirers.
  • Pets are not allowed: on your visit remember that pets are not allowed in the museum; the only exception is guide dogs.
