Dans une maison à deux étages la vie, les traditions et les métiers de Malaga nous sont présentés. A ne pas manquer. Don’t miss this small museum if you want to know more it simply learn about traditions, old farming activities and local folklore.

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!
