Housed in one of the very fine surviving Mudejar pavilions from the 1929 Spanish-American Fair in Maria Luisa Park, this is more than the extensive collection of flamboyant flamenco frocks you might expect– though they are certainly there in abundance! There also are ceramics from Triana, handsome furniture, and ancient artisan equipment from blacksmiths’ gear to wine presses, all of which give a taste of life in 19th-century Andalucía. The highlight – along with the tiles – is the historic collection of fabulously colorful posters advertising the city’s famous April Fair, a fascinating gallop through changing trends in graphic design. Look for the striking Art Deco poster from 1930. Closed on Mondays

There was much more than lace and embroidery. The undercroft has been divided up into rooms and good videos on how the tools displayed were used. There were room settings through Seville's history too.

Located in a beautiful palace, this museum is a very reasonably priced place to visit. Perhaps they should charge more and upgrade it. The floor that was temporarily closed had been so for 11 years! The workshops are interesting especially if you have any idea about what they are depicting. Once you leave the entrance building and go around the... More

This museum has plenty of artifacts, but virtually no explanation of any of them. No information on place of discovery, year made, etc... An ancient bowl would just say "bowl." I did not learn much, and ended up speeding through the museum to leave. Would not recommend to a friend.

We were first attracted by the beauty of this building. A stunner. When we went wanted to see the traditional costumes section but it was closed. Bummer. However to my surprise, they have a great area all about the traditional artisans, such as guitar making, painting tiles and olive presses. This was all presented in small rooms full of the... More

Worth price of admission. Beautiful building. Many different arts on display. Get out of the rain or heat and have a nice stroll though. I found the mechano set I had as a child.

A fabulous building in a really nice park. Unfortunately when we went one of the main floors was closed and the other exhibits were a little disappointing. It all felt a bit neglected but it was interesting enough and didn't feel like a waste of time - worth the walk and free entry for EU citizens €1,50 I think for... More

Free entrance till 9 pm to one of the places I enjoyed the most to visit in Sevilla. The place itself is beautiful and there was really interesting expositions.

I enjoyed visiting the museum, it has an interesting collection of textiles, lace, embroidery and ceramics. I really liked the way it celebrated Twentieth Century Woman's Crafts such as embroidered napkins, table cloths etc - which are often overlooked.

Our tour guide said that we were the first clients of his ever to visit this museum - which is a little bit away from the main attractions. Whilst there is a good selection of Lace (from everywhere not just Spain) on the Ground floor, what captivated us were the craft displays in the basement of the building. Lots of... More

The installations were interesting but could have used more English and other language translations. Several rooms were closed for re-installation. There was no food service available, a disappointment since food facilities are very few in this area of the park.
