Are you coming down with something? Are you feeling a bit hot, sort of feverish? I’m no doctor, but I have a sneaking suspicion that you’ve got a dire diagnosis – museum madness. And there’s only one way to cure it if you’re not a curator: head to these historical hubs and immerse yourself in antiquity.
There’s no better place to do this than Málaga and, when you take a transfer from Málaga Airport to Seville, you’re going to be passing by some of the most unusual and exciting museums around. Airplanes and art, dance and drama – these galleries have it all. Read on, but be warned…you might catch the history bug.
After your flight, as you hop into one of Shuttle Direct’s comfortable transfer vehicles, you’ll probably still have planes on the brain. Luckily for you, the first museum you’ll pass on your transfer from Málaga Airport to Seville brings aeronautical history to life.
Museo Aeronáutico believes in interactive and immersive learning. They want visitors to properly experience the aircrafts they feature – by touch, by entering the cockpit and by sitting in the pilot’s seat – while still getting a healthy dose of the history and logistics of aviation.
Automobile and Fashion Museum
If you still want to learn more about transportation, the next museum you should keep an eye out for on your way from Málaga Airport to Seville will stylishly sate that desire. While a large portion of the exhibitions at Museo Automovilístico y de la Moda feature vintage automobiles (some are even available for rental), you will also be able to view Haute Couture fashion and contemporary art. From cars to design, experience the creative evolution of the twentieth century here.
Continue en route from Málaga Airport to Seville for even more art – Museo Picasso is up. Though you’ll only be driving by it, this gallery houses over 200 of his works and is worth a return trip. Pablo Picasso himself wanted his creations to be on display in the city in which he was born. Years after his death, owing greatly to the major contributions from his daughter-in-law and grandson, the collection finally opened. There’s no better place to personally get to know this artist and his famous compositions.
Museum of Glass and Crystal
It’s clear as… err, crystal that Museo del Vidrio y Cristal is worth looking out for as you pass from Málaga Airport to Seville. It’s filled to the brim with history – from the eighteenth-century house in which the museum is located to its private collection featuring over 3,000 pieces of glass, this stunning gallery allows visitors to witness the beauty and ingenuity of human creations. Return to marvel at these opulent objects; delight in the furniture, pictures and other decorative pieces from all different epochs and eras.
Game of Thrones fans will be eager to come back to Museo de Osuna, the next history hub this transfer from Málaga Airport to Seville will whisk you past. This museum has an entire ‘Ice and Fire’ room which is dedicated to the show, as it was filmed locally. The rest of this collection houses various physical reminders of Osuna’s past, ranging from earthenware to art. Even the building itself is a bit of antiquity – it is an eighteenth-century house-palace.
José María Moreno Galván Museum of Contemporary Art
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo José María Moreno Galván is exactly what it sounds like – a gallery of modern artwork. This is the next attraction your shuttle from Málaga Airport to Seville will take you by, and those who are a fan of contemporary pieces will definitely want to come back when they have more time.
There are exhibitions that support young artists who are just starting out, as well as ones that are permanent and feature works from the museum’s namesake and other prominent creators (like Picasso – the Málaga native seems to come up a lot). The media used here are extremely varied, with formats that include video art, photography, sculpture, performances, engraving, drawing, painting and more.
Flamenco Dance Museum
The final attraction as you make your way from Málaga Airport to Seville is Museo del Baile Flamenco. Here you will enter the passionate world of flamenco. Discover all aspects of this art form – experience the guitar, the singing and, most importantly, the dance itself.
With permanent and temporary exhibitions, you will learn about the history, culture and evolution of flamenco. And if you want to immerse yourself in it, this interactive museum offers shows where you can watch talented dancers perform live. Definitely one for those with a zest for life to revisit.
The recommended visit time for all museums is at least a few hours. Make sure you give each of them the time they deserve so that you can discover all the secrets, wonders and fascinating history that live within.
From Málaga Airport to Seville
Flights from London to Málaga Airport (AGP) are just under three hours, and the journey to Seville once you land is about the same. Although there are many ways to get to your accommodation, I always find booking a transfer with Shuttle is easiest. Just meet your driver in the airport and they’ll take care of the rest for you – no dealing with directions or stressing out over driving in a foreign country.
Now all you have left to do is sit back, relax and keep your eyes peeled for these unusual museums – and decide which you want to come back to when you have more time.
Top Tip: If your driver speaks English, ask them for advice on what you should do and see. They’re often locals who can give you some insider insights.
