Overview

Housed in one of the very fine surviving Mudejar pavilions from the 1929 Spanish-American Fair in Maria Luisa Park, this is more than the extensive collection of flamboyant flamenco frocks you might expect– though they are certainly there in abundance! There also are ceramics from Triana, handsome furniture, and ancient artisan equipment from blacksmiths’ gear to wine presses, all of which give a taste of life in 19th-century Andalucía. The highlight – along with the tiles – is the historic collection of fabulously colorful posters advertising the city’s famous April Fair, a fascinating gallop through changing trends in graphic design. Look for the striking Art Deco poster from 1930. Closed on Mondays

Very nice and free museum (to EU citizens) portraying Andalucian life. Shame that the first floor for costumes was temporarily closed but it was still worth going. Situated in a marvellous park.

I visited the roman one a month ago, and I was very curious when I saw that there was popular traditions' museum in Sevilla. It's nice, well organized, interesting It's free for EU citizens, so why not?

In a fine 'Mudejar' style building, in contrast to the Renaissance style Museum across the Plaza de America, is this large collection of displays of traditional life and crafts. On one floor is part of one of Europe's largest collection of embroidery and lace together...More

The top floor was closed for re design when we visited in August, but it was still a very worthwhile visit. The lower floor has an amazing display of "workshops" donated by retiring craftsmen and women who have passed on their tools, and stories. You...More

I'm not sure if we saw the whole museum. I believe they said the 2nd floor was closed for work, and they did not make us pay (U.S. citizens). So, there may usually be more to the building than what I saw. There were displays...More

You probably wont find this museum on the top of a recommended sights list, which is a surprise to me. The building itself is a beautiful piece of architecture. The surrounding area is magnificent as a whole. It faces the Plaza de America in Maria...More

Situated in Luisa Maria Park, the museum building itself is spectacular with the garden in front of it and the other museums around. The museum displays utilities of everyday life: the invention, the improvement and the production. I especially enjoyed items related to Andalucía, i.e....More

The building is a magnificent example of the Mudejar style. Located within the impressive Maria Luisa Park and constructed for the 1929 expo…. As to be expected water plays a significant role and time in the gardens will enhance the visit.
