“Quirky”
Review of Museum House of Dolls - CLOSED

Museum House of Dolls
Attraction details
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Tucked away in a street leading into the Plaza de la Merced, this museum is housed in an old Malagueño building, which itself is worth viewing. The collection itself is eclectic and quirky, and has many fine examples of toys obviously once treasured by their owners.

This museum has very few visitors, which is a pity because it is a different type of museum showing doll houses and their furnishings over the ages. One can learn very much by looking at these doll houses and this is not just for doll fanciers. It is really a wonderful museum

You cannot miss this museum which shows in miniature the houses and way of living of people in S.XIX.

Just next to Picasso Museum, easy to visit, you will get a nice and real view about how people used to live in South Spain in S.XIX and XX. Dressing, forniture, and houses, through small replicas.

It also shown small houses built secretely inside wardroves during the Spanish war.

Very nice and curious place to visit

The museum was a lovely private collection of doll houses and dolls from different parts of Spain and eras.They were lovely to see..but I did feel however that 5 Euros was quite a bit to pay for this Museum considering its only entrance level and second floor.You can see it in 20 minutes time unless you want to examine every piece etc.Nice to see but price wise I felt it was high compared to other museums and what they have to offer.If you enjoy seeing doll houses you will definately lover this then!

This museum has about 50 doll houses that show how houses looked like in Spain during different time periods. The earliest is a house from Cadiz that dates from the early 19th century. The collection has houses that date to 1950. There are houses from Granada, Madrid, Sanlucar de Barrameda, Cordoba, Asturias, Palma de Mallorca, Jaen, Valencia, as well as other regions of Spain. The houses have traditional Spanish architecture for the time periods in which they were made. Most of them were acquired in antique stores. Every house on exhibit has its own explanation in Spanish and English. The furniture in the houses are representative of real furniture used during the date the houses were made, so really it is a history of the country, its architecture, and its decorative arts. The miniature houses have miniature chandeliers, furniture, carpets, and other furnishings. Seeing them is really a very enjoyable learning experience. Besides the doll houses, there are also dolls that have been collected by the owner. Some have traditional Andalusian costumes.
