Expert review of Museum of Art and Popular Culture

Day to day life through the ages.

The Museum of Art and Popular Culture can be found facing the Archaeological Museum, in the beautiful Mudejar pavilion built for the 1929 exhibition in Maria Luisa Park, and is devoted to Andalusian arts, crafts and traditions. As well as the temporary exhibitions the main floor houses the recreation of the Diaz Velazquez house and the accompanying collections of embroidery and lace. Downstairs there is a collection of locally made ceramics, and exhibits devoted to domestic furniture and utensils, and crafts including guitar making, winemaking, metalwork, knives and guns. Upstairs you can find 19th century costumes and accessories, a rural house and religious objects. The museum also preserves a large collection of images of aspects of the city's culture that make it special, such as the April Fair and Semana Santa.
