We were particularly impressed by the unique lace collection! The museum also displays an expansive array of local artefacts and everyday life. It is reccomended to combine your visit with the Archaeological Museum nearby.

Free if you are an EU citizen with a passport so worth maybe 30 mins of your time if you are in the area.

However I found much more of interest in the building itself (the decor, the stairwells, the coiurtyard), than I did in what was actually in the museum.

Not really that suited to non-Spanish reading individuals as most exhibitions have not been translated. Basically a bit like a local history museum in rural England but set in a majorly impressive building.

Having been in, if there was an entrance fee I don't think that I would go again.

It is a few minute walk from Plaza de Espana and this could be the reason for not so many tourists reach it. Many prefer to stop at the striking square without reaching the close museum area (there is also the archaeological museum). The museum has an interesting underground exhibition with many reconstructions of local crafts but I wouldn’t say it is interesting enough to go out of your planned trip to visit it. Entrance is free for EU citizens (€ 1,50 for others). One hour is more than enough for a visit far from the summer heat.

a free entrance for EU citizens, a very beautiful building in the gorgeous parque of Maria Luisa, nice exhibitions and we were able to enjoy a concert of old andalusian instruments and dance on Sunday, highly recommended

We popped into this museum for a bit of shade while walking in the Maria Luisa Park. Entrance is free for EU citizens, so you've nothing to lose. The exhibits are mostly without translation into other languages but generally they are self-explanatory. There are tableaux of various local crafts (barrel-making, guitar-making, olive-pressing, etc) and there are rooms set out in the style of bygone ages. It's not a museum to go out of your way for, but it makes a nice cool break if you;re in the area.
