Malaga Museum of Customs and Traditions – Museo Unicaja de Artes y Costumbres Populares
What a wonderful day out we had in Malaga city. Our friends John and his wife Chris treated us to a day out in Malaga City where we visited the Museo Unicaja de Artes y Costumbres Populares.
The museum is focused on life in 19th-century Málaga, with furniture, agricultural items & other artefacts.
On entering we were asked if we were pensioners? If so, we got in at half price. Considering entrance was only €4 it seemed a real bargain.
The museum is actually a large townhouse built in the Spanish imperialist style. It is magnificent. It is hard to know where to start describing the place. The first thing you are greeted with is a snapshot of life in old Spain. mock-ups of Spanish kitchens and living areas show just how basic life could be.
I knew this would be a hard post to write, so, fortunately, I took a lot of photographs. Rather than have you read through endless descriptions, I thought it would be easier for you to see the photographs of what is inside the museum.
