This museum isn't the biggest and most famous of the city but it's really worth seeing it. First of all, it's very good value since the entrance fee is so cheap and second: it's an ancient palacio that has been turned into a museum and...More

Fabulous house with lots of interesting exhibits about the history and life in Malaga. Our only criticism is that more interpretation in English and an overview of the house layout would have helped us understand more.
