Our 6 and 4 year old really enjoyed this museum. It answered some of their questions about Spanish houses, olive oil and religious iconography. It was quiet when we went in the morning so we could explore without interruption. Well worth it for us.

This Museum is a wonderful introduction into the culture, life-style, agriculture and history of Malaga and Andalucia before modern times. I only visited this historic house at the end of a 4-month stay in Malaga and it broadened my understanding of the area considerably. I spent 2 hours all by myself in there and thought it was fantastic.

Part of Andalucia in modern city. Big collection related to peasant everyday life. Careful reconstruction of oil production place, smith, dining room, spanish kitchen, etc. House itself is very beatiful and have nice patio. Strongly recommended!

Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares is a must see while you are in Malaga. It will tell you the story of how people leaved in the 19th century in the area. The house that hosts the museum along with exhibits is great. The museum is situated close to Malaga Central market and by the river bed.

A little off the beaten path and not a very large museum but our 9 year old really enjoyed getting to see more about how people lived. It is very nicely exposed. It doesn't seem to be air-conditioned so morning visits might be cooler.
