Museo de Belenes consists of two exhibition areas.
The main one is inside, with more than 70 artistic nativity scenes on display. This is complemented by an outdoor area exhibiting crafts and customs, along with farm implements, two oil mills and the recreation of a traditional Andalusian house.

The outdoor area also has a playground and an open-air stage for events.

In this section you will find relevant information to prepare for your visit.

Museo de Belenes is located in the municipality of Mollina, 65 kilometres from Málaga, 18 kilometres from the Antequera Dolmens, and 47 kilometres from Caminito del Rey.

Art, tradition, nature and gastronomy in a globally unique geographical triangle.

There were already hundreds of reasons to visit the interior of Málaga province, but they never had as much importance, impact and interest as they do now.


Museo de Belenes is easy to find because it is just off the A92 motorway on the outskirts of the municipality, in a natural setting.

There is free parking to the rear of the building, and also ample space for leaving buses or cars in the area around the museum.


The ALSA company runs bus transport and connects Mollina with cities such as Antequera, Málaga, Granada and Seville. Please check their website and routes for the best option depending on your needs.

As the distance from the bus stop to Museo de Belenes is 400 meters, we do not recommend walking. The building is located on the outskirts of Mollina.
