  • The Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares brings us some of the customs in Malaga in the past. Well organized, the rooms feature tools used in houses and also in the workplace of people. Well worth getting to know the local culture.

  • This museum is downtown, filled with antique objects that were used in Malaga bourgeois everyday life. There are carriages, forging utensils, clothing and even a delivery room chair. It serves to give an idea of the life which was carried before. Also located in a very nice mansion.
