Really enjoyed our visit to the museum spending 2hrs viewing the exhibits and having a picnic on the lawns. The facility is free but donations are welcome in the collection boxes to pay for upkeep and aircraft refurbishment. A good way to spend sometime if you have an afternoon flight and want something to occupy the morning. (closed on Sunday's).... More

This airport has recently been refurbished and in general it's not a bad for an airport. But they could have done so much better. There are no modern check in systems, you have to queue, suggest you check in online before flying. The security control is fairly reasonably controlled, you don't have to wait too long compared to other airports.... More

It's hard to tell who the airport staff are,uniforms not distinctive. Politeness is lacking from staff especially border control at the gates. Announcements inaudible for an airport of this standard.

Airports by nature, often suck but I really like Malaga. Very open, very friendly, and a good amount of features. The security was a little long but they did a good job getting everyone through. Overall a great airport.

The museum has a only a few aircraft (about a dozen, some out, some indoors), but it also has historical pieces related to ATC (you even hear live radio of Malaga air traffic) and the tower, aircraft engines, aircraft models, Spanish airlines memorabilia and uniforms. You can get in some of the aircraft and even play the announcements in the... More

I brought my engine-loving husband to the museum as a treat for him, and found it was quite interesting for me too - the original airport terminal building is filled with flying memorabilia from the days when air travel was much more than just a way of getting from A to B. Simply but interestingly done, the best part was... More

This museum is hidden away but well worth finding, its free entry but there is a bottle in reception for donations the recommended donation being three euros which is well worth it and more besides as it goes towards the upkeep. A friendly girl is in the reception area and shows you where everything is, there was more here than... More

The last time we visited this airport it was in 1998. They have since extended it and made it a lot bigger. It is now a lovely airy airport, and it was a pleasure to use it.

I had to get a cruise from Malaga and did not have to hurry out of this airport since we were spending some extra days here. It was quite lovely.
