A multicultural space featuring both art and luxury
Located in the old Tabacalera neighbourhood of Malaga, this museum covers the history of the automobile, haute couture and other luxurious objects with unique models and designs never displayed before. It features an extraordinary private collection covering some 6000 m2 that describes the history and artistic evolution of such objects since the late 19th century in its 13 themed rooms.
On the one hand, visitors will find nearly a century's worth of exclusive restored vehicles from different eras and trends, such as the Belle Époque and Art Deco. The exhibition shows how artistic trends have evolved thanks to vehicle designers such as Ettore, Bugatti, Gordon Buehrig, Giuseppe Figoni, Freestone and Labourdette. Automobiles with ostrich feather and mink upholstery, beautiful woods, marble and silver door handles and customised engines can all be seen.On the other hand, the museum's "The Show Must Go On" collection consists of vintage items created by famous brands, such as Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Balmain and Prada, with links to famous female figures in recent history.All this, and a range of contemporary art installations and other surprises, make this museum a highly recommended tourist destination.
