  • A well and truly underrated gallery. Some incredible pieces of work, all so brilliantly curated and thoroughly enjoyable. One could spend hours mesmerised by the beautiful works in the place. It’s surprisingly quiet and those we came across all seemed relaxed and pleased. There is a lovely attached cafe well worth rewarding yourself with a coffee after your visit.
  • An amazing gallery with galleries of beautiful paintings, a cafe and great gift shop. There is also a temporary gallery - when I visited, it was an exhibition of prints. Well worth a visit - make sure you look at the incredible carved wooden ceilings.
  • Beautiful museum with a wide range of art work all set in a beautiful building in the heart of Malaga. The morning we visited there was a guitar recital as well. We'll worth a visit.
  • Very comfortable with benches in most of the salas to sit and contemplete the art. Very interesting exhibitions and in order of dates. All are amazing, I could've stayed all day. Reasonably priced and in an area to enjoy the surrounding tapas bars and restaurants. Very much worth the visit...
  • Definitely one of the best museums I've ever been to. One hundred percent would really recommend, especially if the idea of being surrounded by romantic landscape and culture of Andalucia entices you. Excellent collections, beautiful structure, fantastic well-scripted FREE audioguide, big rooms, even amazing gift shop. What else can one ask for.
