Mouthwatering Morsels from Málaga, Andalucia, Spain

Yet another amazing Museum opens in the city – The Museum of Málaga

I find it astonishing to have yet another incredible Museum opening in the city of Málaga. What a privilege to have so many cultural attractions in Málaga. This one has been rather a long time in the making (bit of an understatement owing to some rather complicated political in fighting between the Junta de Andalucia in Seville and the City Council here in Málaga), but finally, the magnificent old customs house “La Aduana” will come to life as the Museum of Málaga on the 12th December 2016 and will open its doors to the public from Tuesday 13th December. It is literally a stones’ throw from the entrance to the Alcazaba and Roman amphitheatre.

We were given a sneak preview earlier this year and we can promise that this Museum is yet another “jewel” to be found in the city.

An added bonus is that entrance is free for any citizen of Europe and for those that are not, it is a remarkably cheap 1,50€

The building itself is absolutely beautiful (my second favourite patio in the city after the Gran Hotel Miramar which is also opening soon as a 5*GL hotel) and the Museum contains 2,700 exhibits spread over three floors. What is incredible is that the collection spans over 2,000 years from Roman artefacts that include statues, pottery and mosaic floors, right through to the 1980’s and give an intriguing insight into the history of the city which has been so heavily influenced by the Romans, the Moors and the Catholics over the years. I loved the collection of paintings (with the obligatory Picasso of course!).
