Museo de Arte Precolombino Felipe Orlando

Museo de Arte Precolombino Felipe Orlando

Share

Museo de Arte Precolombino sits in the heart of Benalmádena Pueblo. Flaunting the charms of an Andalusian villa, the building housing the museum is a manor house expanding over 3 floors and 8 rooms. The museum displays the collection of Pre-Columbian America pieces in Spain, counting over 700 artisanal artefacts and domestic objects from the biggest civilisations in Pre-Columbian America – the Mesoamerican and Andean civilisations – with pieces from Mexico, Peru, Nicaragua, Colombia and Ecuador. There are also archaeological pieces discovered in different settlements in the local area on display, taking you on a journey through the municipality’s 5,000 years of history. The museum offers one of the most important exhibits of millennium-old cultures in Spain and is the only one of its kind in Andalusia. The museum was once the residence of Felipe Orlando García-Murciano, painter, poet, writer and anthropologist from Mexico who donated his collection to the town and raised funds to create the space which he managed until his death.
