  • A very nice, small museum with artifacts from past times, crafts, costumes, lifestyle, popular piety, house facilities etc. Here you can spend an hour well (if you take plenty of time). Really waouh nothing around, but nonetheless instructive. With the House even with the typical courtyard (patio) is at its most beautiful.

  • This small museum shows how Malagueans lived in the 19th century. There are rooms showing how they lived and worked, examples of the clothes they wore, the tools they used, and the products they made.  more »

  • Informativ excebition about the life in the oldtime Málaga. Situatet in an beautiful old 18th. century Inn.
  • This is a lovely, small museum that gives visitors a glimpse into daily life in Andalucía and Málaga specifically, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. You can spend as little as 45 minutes here, or as much as two hours. I loved seeing everything from a giant old olive oil press to many enchanting figurines and posters depicting early 20th imaginations. After you're done shopping, eating and beaching in Málaga, this museum is a completely worthwhile and romantic time capsule of pre-war Spain, and of Andalucía in particular. It's also just a few minutes walk from the main center of the city, so very convenient.
  • This is a little gem with fascinating displays of everyday artifacts from the past couple of centuries. Well displayed and with just enough information in Spanish and English.
  • Interesting folklife museum
  • A simply amazing museum inside of a beautiful old house! You must visit this museum while staying in Malaga!
