Breathtaking art of an artist that is still productive. Wonderful house. We had no expectations and were totally mesmerized! Don't miss. Definitely our favorite art museum in Málaga.

When we were there there was a reception going on as the artist had donated his latest drawing of a violin to the museum. This small museum is certainly worth visiting. The quality of the paintings and drawings is high.

We stumbled on the Museum by accident as we were heading back to our Hotel. The paintings and drawings on display are superb and I would highly recommend paying a visit.

We are interested in art and architecture so visited this museum in a restored old house. We did not know of Revello de Toro's work before and what a surprise. His paintings (a donation by the artist) are truly inspirational. Beautiful portraits with a lot of use of white draped fabrics and bright light. And the still life of glass... More

I literally stumbled upon this museum when wandering through the streets around Plaza de Merced - and I'm so glad I did! It was a delight - and the audio commentary (included in the inexpensive ticket price) was really helpful in learning more about this artist who is famous in Spain, but not so widely known elsewhere. The paintings are... More

Revello de Toro Museum is set in a delightful place you wouldn't want to miss if you can afford about 1 hour of your time. It has a large and outstanding collection of beautiful romantic paintings all by the master Felix Revello de Toro. The fee is an acceptable € 2 p.p. while those under 18 and above 65 are... More

Stumbled across this place by chance, 2 euro for adults and free for children. Excellent pieces in a beautiful central house with lovely, enthusiastic staff. The gallery / museum is just behind the cathedral. It is quite small so you will probably only new 45 mins to an house to see everything.
