This museum, in an old house in the centre, gives a good insight into how the people of Malaga used to live. Some rooms have been beautifully recreated with a variety of artefacts. Other displays show costumes and forms of travel. Then there are specific rooms where you see how the work of wine making and fishing, for instance, used... More

It cost 4 euros to enter. You see 18 rooms of Malaga history which helped put things into perspective for us. The museum is located in an old home.

Went in the museum first thing and spent a good hour taking in all the exhibits. There are a lot of things to see in quite a small place but they are all very interesting providing information in both Spanish and English. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Visited this museum today & very pleasantly surprised by how interesting it was. Located in a former inn, the rooms illustrate historic Spanish lifestyles from a number of perspectives. Lots of interesting artefacts, most not behind glass. Would benefit from a few more signs in English in places.

Full of surprises. Beautifully kept exhibits and fascinating insights of the local history. Everything from the small fishing boat, the bakery, stunning horse/donkey carriage section, wonderful old steam engine, kitchens, then the costumes and artefacts upstairs. Thoroughly and thoughtfully done. Also very cordial and pleasant staff.

This is an excellent smaller museum with quality pieces and well written explanations to support the exhibits. Worthy of a visit if you are interested in turn of the century local history.

If you are interested in social history and the objects that our ancestors used in their daily lives this museum will be of interest to you . If this isn't your bag do not bother to visit . We loved this museum !

We found lots of museums shut on Monday, but this was open and it was a little gem. One got a real feel for how hard life was in the old days where everything was made by hand and the craftsmanship was excellent. It is a charming museum and worth a visit.
