  • Total waste of time. Lotso f tennis racquets, a few video games, and some pictures...waste of an entrance fee. Don't bother!  more »
  • As a long time tennis and general sports fan, this was right up my street. Very modern approach to a museum with lots for young people to interact with but also plenty for oldies to admire.  more »

  • Really fun museum. My grandma wanted to come here because she is a big fan of tennis so we came and I loved it. All the games where so fun and it was one of the most fun days of my life! Please come here I highly recommend it.
  • A great family day out. We were on holidays in Mallorca from Ireland. We are tennis fans and were delighted to be able to visit the museum and see all of Rafa's trophies and other memorabilia. Vamos Rafa 🎾🏆🇮🇪
