Malaga Museum

Local name: Museo de Málaga

The Málaga Museum was founded in 2016 by merging two institutions: the Museum of Fine Arts and the Provincial Archaeological Museum. His unique collection includes over 15,000 excavation exhibits and nearly 2,000 outstanding works of art from the 19th and 20th centuries. The building is currently the largest museum in Andalusia. Its headquarters is the phenomenal Customs Palace.

The museum's current collection has been in storage for over 20 years and was not made available to the public. The inhabitants of Malaga organized social movements and demonstrations in order to draw the attention of the authorities to the need to create a museum institution. Their voice was heard, and the facility was located in a phenomenal, nineteenth-century residence.

The Customs Palace was built in 1826 in areas 'ripped out of the sea'. The author of the neoclassical building in the shape of Italian Renaissance palaces was the Spanish architect Manuel Martín Rodríguez. Over the years, the residence served as the seat of the port customs office, tobacco factory and substitute building of the provincial government.
