  • What a fabulous museum. We spent quite some time wandering around the rooms looking at all the beautiful art. They also had some live music and dance taking place. Ended our visit with a sandwich...  more »
  • We thought this was one of the highlights on a cultural tour of Malaga. The many paintings in this art gallery are mostly by Spanish artists & are absolutely wonderful. Many are so memorable...  more »

  • Beautiful museum with a great collection. Reasonable admission costs include audio guides in many languages. Audio guides were very helpful in learning about the art and artists. Staff were extremely helpful in suggesting the flow of the galleries and information about the museum and special exhibits. Various days and times have specials on admission pricing. Lockers available free of charge. Gift shop on premises.
  • Interesting collections spread across three floors. Quite expensive to get in at €10 but make sure you ask for a discounted rate if you live in Málaga province. Apparently the café is also very good but we didn't have anything this time. The building also has some interesting characteristics so have a wander through all the rooms even if some of the art is not your style.
