But in Malaga it is possible to enjoy art for free. Yes, because once a week the city's museums (except for the automobile and fashion museum) offer free access to their installations, allowing people the chance to admire the different collections free of charge. Sundays are generally the days when this option is available, but the initiative varies depending on the location.
