“Great for kids”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

A little off the beaten path and not a very large museum but our 9 year old really enjoyed getting to see more about how people lived. It is very nicely exposed. It doesn't seem to be air-conditioned so morning visits might be cooler.

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The entrance fee is now 4 euros but worth every penny.

Housed in an Old inn it covers all walks of life, occupations and some costumes. There are number of rooms laid out just as they would have been hundreds of years ago. There is a complete office of a poet with signed photos of his friends. There just too far away to read them. There's a forge, fishing boat, kitchen, bedroom, a few horse carriages and an old Fire pump. Lots more to see and do for all ages. Definately worth a visit.
There is large lift to ALL floors.
From here you can walk to the La Casa del Cardenal antique shop which closes at 2 pm then the Carmen Thyssen art gallery where you can spend the afternoon out of the heat.

“So much to see, too little time”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Because of the different openinghours we only had about half an hour to explore this gem... too bad, there was a lot to see, good english booklet with explanations, interpretations... Since the history museum was closed, this was the best we could do in sense of getting a grip on Malaga history.

I enjoyed the rooms on the first floor with explanations on wine making, harvesting, bread making and yes, also on living in the small houses, but mainly you can get a bit of a feel of how staying at an inn would have been like.

The atmosphere is nice, calm and relaxed, the building is cool and it really is a nice gettaway from the hussle and buzzle of the city, really something else!
I would have loved to own a dress like the ones on display on the second floor.

Pitty we only had a half hour to rush through the museum, so when you go: plan a good amount of time for this museum!

“Folklore Museum”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This museum gave an idea of clothes, furnishings, livelihoods and past times of old Malaga. Highlights were the christening robes, toys, and room reconstructions.
