Reasons for trip


The Museum of Malaga is a wonderfully grand, pale coloured building near the historic centre. No longer UK citizens, we had to pay an entrance charge of €1.50 which was still very reasonable.

There were two floors, the first with art, and the second with art and archaeological artefacts. However, everything was uncluttered, well laid out and as it wasn’t too busy and was cool and a respite from the mid-day sun. There were also toilets on each floor, plenty of staff to guide you, although there was a natural route, and a café and restaurant (which we didn’t use) and a shop.

On the first floor we sat and watched a six-minute interesting film about the history of Malaga and the founding of the museum.

On the second floor we saw the statues taken from the house at the Botanical Gardens we had visited earlier in the week, and enjoyed the sketches of the house, including an iconic curved bench seat. The second floor was less interesting to us but was well structured with exhibits being in English as well as Spanish.

There was a beautiful central courtyard on the ground floor, and you could also wander their storage room which had exhibits all around but not labelled.
