“Small museum is better than I expected”

Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares

Attraction details
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Near the river west of the town center at the edge of the pedestrian zone, this little known museum has a nice collection of local crafts and costumes. It is in a renovated historic inn with a nice courtyard. Worth a detour for a pleasant hour of nostalgia of Spain 100 years ago.

Immaculately maintained historical artefacts and costumes in a delightful old building. It's a bit tucked away but actually only five minutes walk from the old city. If you like seeing how people lived in the past this is a real find!

We almost missed this museum - we walked past it several times without noticing it. For only 2 Euros this old Inn housed a display of artefacts and tableau from various parts of Andalusia. Very interesting

Few people go to this museum, but it is quite interesting. The building itself is interesting because it shows how houses were built around a central patio. Inside you can see a collection of small clay figures showing people in different costumes. The advertising posters and labels of the raisin boxes show how this very important industry in Malaga advertised itself. Malaga has been known for several centuries for its raisins.

I enjoyed very much to see the big paintings of Anita Delgado. Reading her life, she had an extraordinary life, getting married to the Maharaja of Kapurtala. I have read that one Spanish actress wants to make a movie of her very interesting life.
