Museums and collections for everyone
If there is one thing that stands out in Malaga’s cultural offer, it is the number and variety of museums. Malaga now has almost 40 museums, the most iconic being the Picasso Museum, the Malaga Museum, the Centre Pompidou, the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC), the Carmen Thyssen Museum and the Russian Museum among many others.
What is the reason for this cultural display?
We could say that Malaga decided to make a commitment to culture, to create a city of museums, to revalue our heritage, to create a tourist attraction and also to manage to deseasonalize tourism.
The sun and beach tourist boom on the Costa del Sol has been a key industry for the development of the city in recent times. However, Malaga city became a place of passage, unknown to the vast majority of families who came to enjoy our climate and our coasts. Thanks to this change both regulars and new visitors are rediscovering all that the city has to offer.
This display of museums, together with the city’s investment in infrastructure, creates a “cultural amusement park” to be enjoyed all year round. In Malaga there is much more than just sun and beach.
In the city there is a wide range of cultural offer for everyone, from museums for the youngest ones like the Interactive Museum of Music (MIMMA) or the Video Game Museum (OXO), to the more local ones like the Jorge Rando Museum, the Revello de Toro Museum or the collection of Museums of Easter Week Brotherhoods.
We have a lot to see and learn, so we have created a series of private tours of the museums that we consider key to discover. However, we are always available to create a custom made visit to suit your needs.

Which museum do we recommend visiting?
Picasso Museum Málaga
Undoubtedly the most representative museum of the city and also the most visited. The best way to discover one of Malaga’s favourite sons is to get to know his work. In this museum we will make a chronological visit through the lids and work of the famous artist.
Carmen Thyssen Museum
Since 2011 we have been fortunate to have the private collection of modern art of Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza. Explore the romantic art and the costumbrismo that will show us the Andalusia of the 19th century, as well as the preciosismo and the naturalist painting with its landscapes of light and colour that will dazzle us.
Malagueños’ favourite museum. As it brings together both fine art and archaeology we consider it to be the best representation of the art and history of the city.
Discovering local and adopted artists as well as Malaga’s 2500 year old remains is key to understanding the importance of this museum for Malaga.
As it is divided into two sections, the visit to this museum can be made in three ways, archaeology only, fine arts only or all of them together.
