Fabulous house with lots of interesting exhibits about the history and life in Malaga. Our only criticism is that more interpretation in English and an overview of the house layout would have helped us understand more.

This was a surprise. As we were walking past fabric shops for some reason we thought this was a costume museum, in fact it is customs. Some great artefacts very well presented. A school party was going around, they were particularly fascinated with the birthing...More
