This is one of the nicest museums of popular arts and culture that I have been to. The building is charming and the displays are fascinating with excellent explanations with translations into English. It is also reasonably priced which is a bonus.

This museum is a journey through time. It is necessary for the recent generation to know how different life and all the circumstances have been. It is important not to take our luxury life of nowadays as natural. This museum keeps the memories alive.

A fascinating look at all sorts of Malaga's history with really good exhibits and explanations. Doesn't seem to attract a lot of tourists, which is a shame.

If you have plenty of time and want to see all museums then go also to this one. There were not explanations of almost anything and it was more like a deposit of old stuff all put together. I was expecting better. 4 euro entrance...More

This museum, housed in an old inn with central courtyard, houses an excellent collection of tools, kitchen equipment, clothing and ephemera from Malaga's history. If it seems slightly haphazard, that's because lives are. We were fascinated by some of the religious artefacts, and loved the...More
