Excellent and cool gallery on 3 floors with nice cafe if you want a break. When finished try the fish restaurant opposite the entrance.as it's very good.

Bang in the city centre, Carmen Thyssen offers a great selection of Spanish art plus interesting touring exhibitions.

Beautiful building, mix of contemporary style in old building. Not too much art. Just enough. Spent an hour pleasant, cool, quiet. Bar in courtyard a gem. Away from street bustle. Good service. Recommend.

Plenty of Spanish paintings including not so well known names. You can find also a few excellent paintings of well known painters

Mostly unknown to me (except for Velasquez), a wonderful collection of vibrant examples depicting scenes in Spanish life.

Beautiful collection of Spanish authors. Loved the tempora exhibition on realism featuring incredibly stunning pieces from international authors of the XX and XXI century. We even got in for free because of a promotional event related to visiting hours. Recommended!

The visit was ok but the variety,I feel was a bit lacking. Once you've seen one Spanish master you might have seen them all. The Pompidou centre, Picasso museum and the Malaga museum seems to offer more thought provoking material

When visiting Malaga you simply must visit this charming gallery. It holds the personal collection of Carmen Cervera which contains mostly 19th century, Andalusian works. Glide through this beautiful, peaceful building and loose yourself from painting to painting. Top tip: Visit after 5pm for free...More

The museum itself is beautifully maintained even if the permanent collection is a little thin...but what we really enjoyed was the temporary exhibit on Realism, which juxtaposed old Spanish masters with contemporary artists, many of whom are absolutely amazing. I was glad to learn about...More

The museum is on a pedestrian street in the old town. I don't know about parking as we visited on foot, sorry. It is a much smaller museum than the one in Madrid but worth a visit. Have a lovely trip...
