Our 6 and 4 year old really enjoyed this museum. It answered some of their questions about Spanish houses, olive oil and religious iconography. It was quiet when we went in the morning so we could explore without interruption. Well worth it for us.

This wonderful Spanish Museum is housed in the Mudejar Pavilion created for the 1929 Latin-American Expo. Its real name is the Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares (Museum of Popular Art and Customs), and it was created in 1972. The rooms dedicated to 19th Century courtly dress, typical Andalusian dress, musical instruments, farming tools used before mechanization, silver and gold work, materials, lace and embroidery.

One can also see exact copies of rooms from two types of typical houses: the traditional country house and a town house both from the 19th century. The ground floor has exhibits of traditional professions, with an oil press, a forge, a baker's oven, a potter's wheel and a tanner's workshop. But, the most interesting rooms and corridors on this floor are those dedicated to ceramics, including all the different techniques from glazed earthenware in relief to painted ceramics...

This Museum is a wonderful introduction into the culture, life-style, agriculture and history of Malaga and Andalucia before modern times. I only visited this historic house at the end of a 4-month stay in Malaga and it broadened my understanding of the area considerably. I spent 2 hours all by myself in there and thought it was fantastic.

Part of Andalucia in modern city. Big collection related to peasant everyday life. Careful reconstruction of oil production place, smith, dining room, spanish kitchen, etc. House itself is very beatiful and have nice patio. Strongly recommended!
