This attraction was widely advertised around Malaga, we knew of the Spanish connection, so we thought it the correct thing to do by visiting. It is situated in the city centre, which helps For a few euros we paid for the complete tour.
The exhibits were sparsely set out, it was not busy and we were conscious of the ever vigilant attendants watching us out of the corner of their eyes. - Just try stepping over the black viewing line or attempting to get close to a picture and they would pounce - It was really off putting.
The paintings were mainly from the second half of the nineteenth century, unfortunately we were not familiar with any of the artists or the works on show for that matter. They seemed to like to paint a lot of countryside views and washerwomen. Could not imagine any of them hanging in my house or adorning the walls of my mansion when I win the Euro Lottery.
The whole exhibition was over four floors (there is a lift however), and we were pretty weary by the end of it. Definitely not an attraction for the family.
I think the problem is that it is an art connoisseur's collection and while we enjoy art, we are not in that category..
