The Museo de Málaga is a museum in Málaga, Andalusia, Spain. Formed in 1973, it brought together the former Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes (Provincial Museum of Fine Arts), born in 1913, and Museo Arqueológico Provincial (Provincial Archeological Museum), born in 1947. As of 2010, the museum remains institutionally divided into two "sections" corresponding to the older museums. There are slightly over 2,000 pieces in the Fine Arts collection and over 15,000 in the Archeology collection. The museum opened to the public in December 2016, becoming the biggest museum in Andalusia and the 5th in Spain.Put Museo de Malaga on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Malaga road trip planner.

The museums of Malaga is located beside the Alcazaba. It’s is a very sizeable museums and a grand appearance from the exterior. more »
Pity there is not a 3.5 really because this is a very nice building. However it is new and lacks exhibits at the moment. The only floor open is the third and that has a reasonable trawl through the history of Malaga. I am sure it will become a main attraction once it gets more exhibits. The cafe is a bit soulless but the restaurant on the fourth floor was wonderful. All in all worth a visit for the building itself.
I do really advise people to visit this museum! The entrance is free and the building is nice and modern, just aside the Roman theatre. The exposition develops from the second floor to the ground floor. Very interesting the history of Málaga explained step by step from its birth to the immigration streams that reached out the city. A very fascinating tomb of an important knight unearthed just few years ago got me really impressed: do stop to admire the ring with an beautiful red jem I carved with Egyptian images! A nice spot also to rest from the hot since the air conditioning is very strong inside. Don't miss it!
