#10 of 35 in Museums in Malaga
Located in a 17th-century inn, Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares offers a snapshot of life in Málaga as it was centuries ago. Each of the museum's 19 rooms offers a complete look at a particular trade or industry, as shown by its artifacts. Wander through an 18th-century blacksmith shop and emerge into a bakery with a corn-grinding mill and other traditional baking implements. Toward the back of the house, you'll find a room dedicated to the Málagueño fishing industry, including a traditional sardine fishing boat. Other rooms are home to wine-making artifacts, costumes, toys, early printed art, and more. The museum contains a remarkable amount of detail, down to the embers in the bedroom hearth.

  • This museum might be a little hidden, but it is also a gem according to me. The name might throw english speakers a little off as “popular” does not have the same meaning, as far as I know, in English...  more »
  • Full of interesting objects from the past, giving you an insight into how things used to be, you don't need too long to visit, probably just an hour or 2 is fine  more »
  • Located in a beautiful building, it recalls life in previous eras, very well preserved and very nice to visit, totally recommended.

  • Great selection of historic artefacts on the ground floor, and a fantastic gallery of cultural works above, all in a beautiful building
  • It is a beautiful, traditional house with impressive collection of objects from past centuries. We liked especially the clothing and kid toys but there is a lot more. The entrance fee is 4 EUR per adult and kids go in for free. We spent in over 1h on a cold winter day and definitely recommend.
  • Another Hidden Gem in Malaga..well laid out and full descriptions in all the room's allow time to take a step back into a bygone era and fully absorb the atmosphere...
  • I was not inside of museum as it was closed. The swuare before is amazing
  • Nice museum. Not very expensive. Worth a visit if you want to know more about local traditions and popular arts.
