The Museum of Arts and Popular Customs of Seville (Spanish: Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares) is a museum in Seville, Andalusia, Spain, located in the María Luisa Park, across the Plaza de América from the Provincial Archeological Museum. The museum had 84,496 visitors in 2007.
The museum occupies the Mudéjar Pavilion (Pabellón Mudéjar) designed by Aníbal González and built in 1914. It served as an art pavilion, the Pabellón de Arte Antiguo, for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, when Aníbal González had the opportunity to design several additional permanent buildings for the plaza. The exterior is ceramic over brick, and has three doors with archivolts adorned with glazed tiles (azulejos).

Slow down in the embroidery and lace exhibit while it lasts. Move in close and study the details as close as you can get. This exquisite art. Contemplate how many tight stitches there are, yet the underlying cloth is not stretched or distorted in the slightest. What finesse! Exactly the right tension repeated by hand tens of thousands of times. They closer you look and think, the more you will appreciate the skill.

Muy recomendable. Perfect introduction to the daily life of Andalusian people in last three centuries. EU citizens free entry.

Nice place. Beautiful building in wonderful surroundings. Museum itself a bit thin on content. And, frankly, not my cup of tea. Still worth a visit though. And free if you are an EU citizen...
