Only 1 euro donation and what a delightful place to visit ! It certainly captures the Mijas of yesteryears with a comprehensive collection of farm tools, fishing equipment and rooms recreating an old bakery and kitchen to name but a few. Most interesting was the room depicting where the famous former Mayor of Mijas , Manuel Cortes Quero known as... More

Being in Mijas this small museum about old times in Spain is well worth a short visit. We just happened to pass by and paid 1 Euro each for entrance. We spent about 30 minutes looking at the vaious exhibitions on both floors.

This museum opposite San Sebastian Church details the history of Mijas Pueblo, how the people lived through the years and how its most fanous resident Manuel Cortes hid for 30 years. The exhibits are authentic and everything is beautifully displayed. Entrance is €1. What a bargain to see so much of interest, learn how people struggled to make a living... More

I was pleasantly suprised that it didn't turn out to be a tourist trap. They don't charge an entrance fee but ask for a donation. It's a small museum but it was interesting enough for our young children (3 and 6yrs)

I have been to many local museums. They vary in quality; this one is memorable. They had lots of real exhibits, including machinery. The commentary was mostly in Spanish, but there was some English. It's content graphically explained life in Mijas Pueblo before tourism; it was tough! A visit is recommended to all tourists!

This is a little gem hidden in the back streets of Mijas. It only costs 1€ for adults, they didnt charge for Children and it shows you the Spain of 50 years ago. Its mainly in Spanish so some imagination is required but take your time and try and figure it out. The view of the streets from the balcony... More
