“A Malaga "Must"”

Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares
Ranked #22 of 239 things to do in Malaga
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 11, 2013

The museum is situated in the "Méson de la Victoria", which is virtually all that is left of the old buildings along the Pasillo de Santa Isabel. This runs alongside "the town drain", the horrendously "landscaped" Rio Guadalmena. It is close to the Market in the Calle Atarazanas, which boasts the old Moorish watergate into the city. The house was once an inn, and many of the original features remain. It contains a very fine collection of Málaga figurines, as well as domestic and agricultural artefacts.

This was a super museum near to our hotel. It was not too big but had some fascinating features and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Would recommend.

Passed this museum a few time thinking it was a museum of costumes.Decided to go in and loved it. Well laid out in a beautiful building. It is very reasonable to visit and gives a very comprehensive overview of Spain 100 years ago. It is full of beautiful itemes form every walk of country life. Very much a highlight of my trip to Malaga and I would encourage everyome to seek it out.

This is without a doubt the most interesting and well presented museum I have ever been to and I have been to many. It isn't advertised much and we literally stumbled upon it. It is a mere 2 euro entrance fee and everything is so well restored. I learned things I never knew about Spain and their way of life and marveled at the number of artifacts on display. Each room shows depicts another aspect of life in Spain from farming to blacksmithing to religion to music and dance to olive oil, wine and raisin production and features each room of the home, I saw my first birthing chair! This is a must-see attraction in Malaga - you will be amazed!

Fascinating little museum covering a wide range of aspects of Spanish life. The building that it is housed in, in itself is worth a visit.
