Wonderful place to to see everyday objects from Malaga's past as well as artwork and costumes. It's not on the main drag so many people miss it.

We have been to Malaga several times and this museum was located close to our hotel. It is a real gem. It is a traditional old courtyard building. The museum is dedicated to how people lived, with mock ups of kitchens and stables etc. how they made bread, honey and also had exhibits more affluent lives. Well worth a visit

Excellent collections covering everyday life. No English text but you can cope with rudimentary Spanish.

There are 12 rooms in an interesting building, each with artifacts with a different theme from Spain of years gone by - farm life, olive oil oress, carpentry, clothing... Well worth a visit to get a view of yesteryear.

Part of a three museum groupon voucher we visited the museum yesterday and had a very pleasant experience. Quite large and with a host of things from past and present. Recommendable if you have a spare hour in the city

It is not a very popular museum. It is not a must but if you have time it is a nice walk. Also there is a public kindergarden in front of it that children will appreciate it.

the museum collection must be good for school trips. We found the house itself the most interesting part. The collection downstairs covered fishing, winemaking, working animals, harness, kitchen and bread making. A diverse range. Upstairs had costumes ceramics, religious festivals. Lots of bits and pieces and not too precious downstairs where you could touch and stand among exhibits.
