Automobile Museum - Malaga

by MarbellaFamilyFun
(Marbella, Spain)

The Automobile Museum of Málaga opened in 2010 in a former tobacco factory constructed in 1927. It now is home to a collection of more than 80 vintage and modern cars and fashionable travel memorabilia from the 20s, 30s 40s and 50s.

This museum is very much about the car as a work of art, and includes models customised by famous painters. Sonia Delaunay, a French-Ukrainian artist and the first woman to have her work exhibited at the Louvre during her own lifetime, was a leader in the art of customising. Sonia painted cars in bold, colourful designs inspired by cubism, providing customised models for BMW, Renault and Bugatti.

As we previously mentioned it also displays fashion items to cater to those less fascinated by four wheeled machines. From Balenciaga to Schiaparelli features headpieces dating from hat heyday, the 1920s to 1950s, from all the great fashion houses: Chanel, Dior, Lanvin, Balmain - there's even a replica of Dali's shoe hat. There are several different expositions, these are complemented by period travel-related pieces, such as old-fashioned leather suitcases, like your grandparents used, and huge antique trunks.
