I would like to tell tourists that this museum has closed permanently this summer because the owner has retired. It was a private museum without any government funding, which did not help the museum. Please do not waste your time trying to see it.

We made this our first sight to visit as my daughter really wanted to visit the museum. After we had difficulty in finding it we were told it was shut. With my limited Spanish I couldn't understand the museum owner when it would reopen or if would reopen at all but there appeared to be building works outside. Basically it... More

Nestled in one of Malaga's oldest historic quarters just a few blocks from the Picasso Museum and Plaza de la Merced (under which there is convenient parking) is this hidden treasure. As a lover of history and architecture, I learned a lot from these antique, large dollhouses that are miniature replicas of how people used to live in various regions... More

This small museum in an old and atmospheric house is a gem. You have to ring the door bell to get in and it does help when you speak a few words of Spanish since the lady who owns this places gets excited and starts telling everything and anything you ever wanted to know about dollhouses, miniatures, architecture and decoration...

Tucked away in a street leading into the Plaza de la Merced, this museum is housed in an old Malagueño building, which itself is worth viewing. The collection itself is eclectic and quirky, and has many fine examples of toys obviously once treasured by their owners.

This museum has very few visitors, which is a pity because it is a different type of museum showing doll houses and their furnishings over the ages. One can learn very much by looking at these doll houses and this is not just for doll fanciers. It is really a wonderful museum

You cannot miss this museum which shows in miniature the houses and way of living of people in S.XIX. Just next to Picasso Museum, easy to visit, you will get a nice and real view about how people used to live in South Spain in S.XIX and XX. Dressing, forniture, and houses, through small replicas. It also shown small houses... More
