The museum was established in the grounds of the old snuff mill, which dates back to 1927, and was empty since 1980. This is not just a museum of classic cars, but also collects the most curious collections of decorative, automotive equipment and accessories.
The museum is organized into ten topic areas, from the Belle Epoque, the Golden 20, or cars that popularized the automobile, to Art Deco, dream cars, the British tradition, or the tuning and alternative energy.
So you can see the oldest car, a 1898 Winner of the Usa, the car of the mother or a picnic, a Fuldamobile, better known as the Egg, a Fiat Topolino, etc …
You will also see legendary brands such as Hispano Suiza, Bugatti, Mercedes, Cadillac, or already extinct, like Excalibur, Delage or Cord. And no shortage of futuristic cars and alternative energy, as a curious steam model 1910.
Fuldamobile Velorex 1960 and “The Egg” of 1955 in Automotive Museum in Malaga. In your tour stop to read the information signs that accompany each car, which not only show you the make and model in question, but they give an interesting view of its history and use. And besides, you will see collections of vintage suitcases, hats, tires, horns, etc.., Which makes this museum a period atmosphere.
