  • The Museum is conveniently located in the Centre of Malaga. In an old building extremely well preserved. Countless works of great artists and Spanish painters are exhibited there. The pictures are very beautiful, in them the great art of painters can be measured combining a very colorful and romanticism. It is a very good option for those who like to enjoy the art of Spanish painting.

  • I'm not much of an art expert, but this collection really fascinated me. It made me want to become a collector and take more interest in the art world.

  • At 1 minute walking from Plaza de Las Flores, in the heart of the town centre. Excellent Musseum. It is worth visiting!.
  • Great exhibitions and permanent collection and the building is a beautiful one, visit the shop with a great collection of art books and assorted gadgets
  • The permanent collection is beautiful and the QR codes to scan near the paintings provide additional information about the artist and the piece.
  • Very nice collection of works from a variety of artists and styles. It is also worth coming again every few months to see the temporary exhibitions. Tickets can be bought separately for the permanent and temporary exhibitions.
  • Good collection lacking true master works
