As if we didn’t have enough in the ‘Museum City’, we’ve been gifted one more. The Museum of Malaga reopened on 12 December 2016, nearly two decades after it closed.
Located in the city’s old customs house (la Aduana), a stone’s throw from the teatro romano, this museum brings together the province’s fine arts and archaeological collections which until 1997 were housed in the building now known as the Picasso museum and the Alcazaba, respectively.
Several protests and 19 years later and the people now have their museum back.
It is now home to 15,000 archaeological artefacts and more than 2,000 fine arts pieces, tracking the city’s heritage from prehistoric times, all the way through to the 21st century.
Plaza de la Aduana s/n, 29015 Málaga
Free entry for EU citizens.
1.50€ for everyone else.
