Flamenco Museum Malaga
Calle Ramon Franquelo 4 (centre)
Hours: 10 am to 2 pm. Closed on Mondays.
Admission: € 1
The centrally located, small flamenco museum is definitely an enjoyable place to visit.
Flamenco doesn’t play as big a role in Malaga as it does in the Andalusian cities of Seville and Granada, but it is certainly a part of the culture.
‘El Museo de Arte Flamenco’ shows us the history and culture of flamenco.
Here, you will find old pickups, records, photographs, posters, paintings, statues, guitars, exuberant flamenco costumes and dresses with matching shawls and fans.
On the ground floor there is a bar where you can enjoy a drink and some tapas.
The museum is owned by Juan Breva, a famous flamenco singer from Malaga.
Tours are given by volunteers and are in Spanish, but do not let that put you off.
Even if you don’t understand a word, the museum itself will tell you the story.
On Friday afternoon/evening there are regular free musical performances in the basement of the building.
Ask for more information at the entrance.
