Museo Interactivo de la Música Málaga


This modern museum houses musical instruments from around the world and across the passage of history. The collection is pretty well laid out in interconnecting rooms that take you on a short journey from the bongos of Africa to the guitars of Andalucía, and you're invited to play some of the instruments. There are flamenco shows (€15) at 1.30pm Monday to Friday and 2pm Saturday in a performance room at the end.
