This contemporary Museum is located in old center of Malaga, it's a follower of modern contemporary art, with sketchs, gravures, brief outlines, with explications; many galeries to visit in a nice building.

My wife and I were of the opinion we would see works by Picasso, Dali and Miro - we didn't. The museum featured an exhibition of engravings by Manolo Millares, with whom we were not familiar. The attendants didn't seem to have any English, nor did they have even a brief complimentary leaflet to give some background to the exhibition.... More

Unpretentiously presented breathtaking collection. The art-centered Spanish approach of the curator is commendable, especially in times of (over)commercialization of venues with master pieces on show. No such thing going on here in this historic town hospital: it is a modern, clean, well kept, airconditioned haven for those interested in the history and psychology of Spanish and Malaganian art.

I think this museum will vary depending on the visiting exhibition. There was a photography exhibition when I went and it was interesting but I think that it would not appeal to everyone. There were some contemporary paintings but the actual engraving is just one old cellar with a couple of old engraving machines. The rest is well displayed art... More

The Museo del Grabado Español Contemporáneo is located in the old Hospital Bazan, a 16th-century building. It houses exhibitions of engravings and art by many artists including Miro, Picasso & Dali. It's a great collection of works and well worth a visit. There is a small entrance fee and toilets are available inside. Recommended

This Museum of Contemporary Spanish Engraving is situated in the heart of the Old Quarter of Marbella very close to the remains of the caliph wall and the Iglesia de la Encarnación. The Museum is in a building of renaissance character but with a clear and significant gothic-mudejar imprint. (XVI c.)

The Engravings Museum is an important site in Marbella's Old Town. Housed in a medieval palace near the cathedral, it has a permanent collection that includes works by top contemporary artists such as Picasso, Dali and Miro. There are interesting exhibitions and workshops are held on a regular basis.
