Top free things to do in Malaga

Visiting one of the awesome museums

Have you heard that on sundays museums are free in Malaga? It’s true, almost all of the 36 museums are free, so go ahead and visit one.

Since sundays are mostly spent with family, most of the stores and shops are closed, there is not much else left to do other than to go and spend some quality time visiting a museum or two such as Museo Picasso or Museo Carmen Thyssen.


You may want to take a look from the Gibralfaro Castle that sits on top of a mountain, its very sunlit and getting up there is a nice exercise that will keep you warm in the unlikely event of you ever being cold in Malaga. It offers the most picturesque view of the city and even further beyond, some say you can even see Africa from the top. Not a view you will be able to forget anytime soon!

Contemporary Art Centre of Malaga (CAC)

Are you a fan of art? The CAC that is located in an area known as Soho de Málaga, which is already worth a visit if you love urban art, is dedicated to the exhibition of artwork from the contemporary period, the 20th and 21st Centuries. As a millenial I enjoyed CAC with its weird art pieces, definitely something every art lover should go and see. The CAC is for free every day from 10am to 8pm.

Experiencing the sunset at the port

If you were looking for the best place to end your day at then seeing a sunset at the port would be your best bet. With the great mix of modern restaurants you can easily pick a place to settle down at and enjoy the contrasting view of the port and mountains. Great idea for a date, huh?

Museo de Malaga

This museum in the city of Malaga was built to help the local artists as a nice sign of support from the city. It hosts a collection of more than 4000 pieces, while the permanent exhibition displays about one hundred pieces of art and archaeological exhibits.

You can freely access to the museum from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 2 pm, and from 5 pm to 8 pm. In summer afternoons, it opens from 6 pm to 9 pm. Free for EU citizens, 1,50 EUR for others.

A stoll trought the park of Malaga

Wish to get the experience of a botanical garden without leaving the city? Why don’t you visit a botanical oasis that includes botanical gardens, fountains & sculptures next to the historical center of the city. Many of the unusual and exotic species were brought from overseas, including Cuba and now the park has become one of the most important public botanical gardens in Europe.
