I started the visit at 10, so I was the first visitor and they even let me take photos. It was the most interesting museum of Malaga, with so many exhibits of work, life, religion and feria.

Hidden away but only minutes from the main shopping area is this beautifully laid out and incredibly interesting museum. Something I imagine to interest all the family and no guards to make you feel uncomfortable. Takes around an hour to get round.

The Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares shows collections of days past and gives an inkling of what people in the past in Malaga collected. I especially liked the portraits in the museum of Anita Delgado.

This is a small museum in historical city centre. Which gives a rough idea about main life streams in Andalucia in XVII - XVIIII centuries. With an everyday life exhibits there're represented such industries as fishing, agriculture, wine making, transport etc. Also there is a room dedicated to religion as it still plays a huge part of life for locals....

There's lots of exhibits here showing many aspects of life in Malaga in the 19- early 20 centuries. The exhibits are displayed in a lovely old building which would be a marvellous bolthole in Summer, being cool and shady! The place could benefit from more info in languages other than Spanish if they want to attract more non-Spanish-speaking tourists. Nonetheless... More

Housed in an old Inn, the building itself is worth seeing, the museum houses every thing from farm carts to household items from previous centurys. Its well worth seeing and as its not large so only takes a couple of hours max.

This museum, in an old house in the centre, gives a good insight into how the people of Malaga used to live. Some rooms have been beautifully recreated with a variety of artefacts. Other displays show costumes and forms of travel. Then there are specific rooms where you see how the work of wine making and fishing, for instance, used... More

It cost 4 euros to enter. You see 18 rooms of Malaga history which helped put things into perspective for us. The museum is located in an old home.

This building is lovely. Beautifully decorated. You walk into an old home with a wonderful patio. Rooms are dedicated to a theme, kitchen , nursery, dining etc, as well as occupations such as fishing, blacksmith, stables. Wander round to explore what suits you. An hour or two will do to cover this. The museum is situated in a square when... More
