“A Wonderful Museum”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

The Holy Week Museum (Museo de la Semana Santa) explains what can be seen during the Holy Week processions in Malaga. Men and women carry the thrones on their shoulders and in this museum you can see a sample of the throne. There are also many samples of the clothes that are worn in the processions, and the gold and silver things that are carried in the processions. The building of the museum is called the Hospital of San Julian, a very historic building. There is a wonderful patio at the entrance to the museum that shows what Andalusian patios look like.

There is a church in the museum with plenty of art. The main altar is very beautiful and is gilded. You can also find 17 very large paintings done by Juan Niño de Guevara from the 17th century. He was one of the best Baroque painters in Malaga. Beside the door to the church, there is a wonderful sculpture of the Crucified Christ.

The large audio visual room shows videos of the processions. All explanations in the museum are both in Spanish and English.
