Eugenio Chicano is a well known Malaga artist and he has painted 34 large format paintings of Andalusian landscapes. There are 4 paintings of each of the 8 Andalusian provinces. The style of the paintings is pop art. The paintings were very interesting.

Lovely staff who let us in before opening time as it was raining. Not much on display but all was fascinating. Not all labels in English. Enjoyed the Miguel de Cervantes temporary exhibition “los quijotes de paco tito”. Layout is a bit confusing. There is a lift but no café. Free entry.

Standing in the shadow of the other museums, a visit is worthwhile: paintings at times linked to the region, and spanning centuries. There are regular exhibitions of artists that lived or live in Malaga, enhancing the feel of attachment. When we visited the museum, there was an exhibition of work by sculptor Paco Jurado. Photo was made from his sculpture... More

The museum concentrates on the... More

My wife and I saw the Ruiz de Luna Exhibition. The Ruiz de Luna Family was the most important family in Spain connected with producing ceramic works of art. The exhibition was very good and showed samples of the work of each member of the family.

We enjoyed the ceramic temporary exhibit that runs thru May 15 2016. The permanent exhibit was also interesting with Pablo Piccaso's works of art - and also paintings of his father's. We were there for about an hour - and entry was free.

My wife and I went to see the Railroad Exhibition, which showed old photos of the train station in Malaga and its history. The first railroad was built by Jorge Loring to bring coal from Cordoba to Malaga for its industries. This was very interesting.

My wife and I saw the Belle Epoque photography exhibition and it was very good and very interesting. There were 34 photographs taken in Malaga from 1890 to 1920. One can see how the landmarks in Malaga have changed over time. People dressed in white and were very elegant.

This museum basically describes Malaga`s development over the centuries. The displays are excellent, although many are only in Spanish. We particularly enjoyed the model displays representing some key events from the city`s history.

This appears to be a EU or Spanish funded museum where a lot of money has been spent to create vast rooms with nothing in them !! I would have left hating the place were it not for the top floors where real art is displayed. Start, if you can, at the top and work your way out.
