This is one of the nicest museums of popular arts and culture that I have been to. The building is charming and the displays are fascinating with excellent explanations with translations into English. It is also reasonably priced which is a bonus.

This museum is a journey through time. It is necessary for the recent generation to know how different life and all the circumstances have been. It is important not to take our luxury life of nowadays as natural. This museum keeps the memories alive.

A fascinating look at all sorts of Malaga's history with really good exhibits and explanations. Doesn't seem to attract a lot of tourists, which is a shame.
