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.

After visiting Malaga many times we decided to visit this museum. Although it is not very large it has a fascinating selection of artifacts depicting many aspects of Spanish times gone by. Worth a visit at only 4€ entry price.

Whether you live here or not this museum is full of interesting artefacts that take you back through the years in Andalucia. Its beautifully displayed in a wonderful old building and information is in English and Spanish. Split into different areas each dealing with a different subject. You'll learn a lot about by gone days. Concession for pensioners.

The museum is worth a visit if you are interested in Andalusian lifestyle of the past century or just wanna do some cultural sightseeing. The house with its beautiful courtyard and nice set up is already worth the visit. You can tell that the people behind this museum put lots of love for details and accuracy in the exhibition. We...
