Small museum in a beautiful house just blocks from the market. It provided a close look at life in Malaga in the 19th century. I highly recommend.

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.

Stumbled across this place while out for a stroll during a trip to Malaga. Really interesting with lots of authentic traditional artefacts. Not too big either - a nice size to spend an hour in. Well worth a visit - you won't be disappointed!

Well worth a visit if only just to sit in the patio away from the heat and sun. The museum itself is small but very well supplied with all sorts of furniture and daily life artefacts.

Collection of objects from a wide range of rural and home life in a lovely old inn. Descriptions in English. Well worth an hour or so.
