Museo de Málaga
Museum in Málaga
The Museo de Málaga is a museum located in Málaga, Andalusia, Spain. It was formed in 1973, when the Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes or Provincial Museum of Fine Arts and the Museo Arqueológico Provincial or Provincial Archeological Museum were combined.
The museum is spread out over two floors in Málaga’s neoclassical Palacio de Aduana. The Palacio de la Aduana was originally a customs house for Málaga’s port. The building was modeled on Renaissance Italian palaces.
The 1st-floor fine-arts collection holds over 2,000 pieces primarily of 19th-century Andalucian landscape and genre paintings, with additional rooms devoted to more modern work.
The extensive archaeological collection, with over 15,000 pieces bequeathed to the city by the noble Loring-Heredia family, ranges from Neolithic shards uncovered in the nearby Cueva de Nerja to medieval wood furnishings from the Alcazaba .
As part of the renovation, the building was refitted with its original gabled roof; the first was destroyed by a fire in the 1920s.
