This museum is well worth seeking out. It may not be the largest, but so much is laid out in the different rooms, and the information given and tools displayed as used in years gone by, a great treat. It's a small place but well presented and good value for a couple of hours visit.

This Museum may not be housed in one of the great palacios of the City, but the former 17th century Inn is still very impressive. The main thrust of the exhibits relate to the life style of the late 19th century. There are many rural artefacts plus special areas relating to the sea. However, not all the items are from that time and, for example, we were particularly touched by the tiny clockwork train set which would have been someones pride and joy. A fascinating Museum, well worth visiting. However, be aware that there are a number of staircases and uneven surfaces to negotiate.

Magnificent old house sympathetically adapted to a museum. All sorts of artifacts and costumes on show. Only 4 euros, excellent value.

This museum might be a little hidden, but it is also a gem according to me. The name might throw english speakers a little off as “popular” does not have the same meaning, as far as I know, in English vs Spanish.
This is a sort of history museum where they arranged, again according to me, the pieces in the exhibition brilliantly in a room set for this particular object/scene. For example there is a room for fishing gear, one for the bakery and so forth. I really liked it as it gives a look into the everyday life of people of the last two centuries. The whole room by room approach really appeals to me and makes the exhibition easier to take in.
Well worth a visit if you are interested in everyday life of Spanish people of the last two centuries.

This is one of my favourite places in Málaga. Whenever I have friends visiting I always take them to the Museum of Popular Arts and Customs. The museum is set in an old convent which also served as a popular inn in the last century. The exhibits set off the charms of the building and tell the local history with obvious love and interest.
It is an absolute must and not to be missed.

according to our guide Mr. Daniel, This is a seventeenth-century building located in the heart of Málaga, in the old inn Victoria. In 1974 the purchase of the old inn is finalized and begin to restore, I was finally opened in 1976.

The building dates from the seventeenth century, when it went to an inn owned by the daughter of Miguel de Araso, confectioner beds of the Catholic Monarchs and in 1621 it was run by the Franciscan community of minimum Friars of the Convento de la Victoria, so took its present name.

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!

The Museo de Artes Populares is an ethnographic museum that shows the culture of Malaga from the past. The building has a beautiful patio covered with trees and plants. There are beautiful posters of the past that announced the Malaga Fair. There are samples of the art on boxes that was used to sell raisins. There are old costumes, a collection of dolls, plenty of religious art, and many small figurines. This museum is worth seeing.

Full of interesting objects from the past, giving you an insight into how things used to be, you don't need too long to visit, probably just an hour or 2 is fine

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 furnished so that you have the impression of walking into a 19th century Andalusian bourgeois home, like taking a step into the past, very interesting!
You'll learn a lot about local Andalusian culture and will see some uncanny objects (special mention for the birthing chair upstairs).
