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 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...

This small museum provides an extremely nice setting for the commonly used objects that are displayed. The museum has a very wide range of objects on display for its size and I found just about every one of them to be interesting and well displayed. Best bargain in Malaga

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 wonderful Spanish Museum is housed in the Mudejar Pavilion created for the 1929 Latin-American Expo. Its real name is the Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares (Museum of Popular Art and Customs), and it was created in 1972. The rooms dedicated to 19th Century courtly dress, typical Andalusian dress, musical instruments, farming tools used before mechanization, silver and gold... More

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!
