    Casa Museo

    This ethnographic museum is in a restored house typical of the region, and is worth visiting for the house alone. The rooms are set around a pretty courtyard, and on the ground floor display old farming tools and equipment, oil presses, kitchen implements, brick ovens and many more objects relating to regional daily life. Dotted among the exhibits there is also a series of small display cases with modelled tableaux, which give you an idea how the various implements would have been used and what people’s homes would have looked like (see photos 3 & 4). It seems that these have all been modelled by the same woman, as we saw some information about her in one of the rooms, which also contained a model of a bull-fight.

    The museum has an upper floor but unfortunately it was nearly time for our bus to leave so we had to go without seeing it. I gather that it has changing exhibitions e.g. of art and photography.

    The museum is open daily from 10.00-14.00 and 15.00-19.00 (Monday to Friday), 16.00-20.00 (Saturdays) and 16.00-19.00 (Sundays). Admission is free, which really surprised me considering how much is on display.

    The Casa Museo is the local history and farming museum housed what was once the original town hall which is classed as one of the towns historic buildings. There are some twelve rooms in the Museum all featuring different aspects of Mijas history such as the typical household, a bakery as well as a couple of ancient olive mills.

    The Majas Town Hall has opened a house, Plaza de la Libertad, 2., as a 'House Museum, showing how various rooms used to be furnished in the old Spanish houses. Not only that, but there are other rooms filled with various machinery from the local area, some used for wine making, and other tools and machinery used in general agriculture.

    It is well worth a visit, and there is no entrance fee. Yes, it's 'Entrada Libre'

    And there are toilet facilities available in this building also.

    Now who is this fool?.... even while doing the housework he has a camera in his hand. Thats a clue that it is almost certainly a VT member. An Ambassador and very well known. Send me your answers and I'll tell you if you are 'Wright'.

    Guess who? I'll tell you if you are 'Wright'.
