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.

  • A rich museum of house artifacts and popular culture of the 19th century in Malaga. Good collection of lithograph prints.

  • 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.
