Museum of the Archconfraternity of Hope

Museum of the Archconfraternity of Hope

A museum created on December 15, 2012, based on the Confraternity Heritage; Processional Thrones, trousseau of the Sacred images and processional goods among others.

The Archconfraternity of the Hope of Malaga is one of the most beloved in the city. The Christ, the work of Mariano Benlliure in 1935, represents a Nazarene lifting the cross.

Mary Most Holy of Hope is an anonymous work from the 17th century of which only the head was preserved after the incidents of 1931. Being a Virgin to dress has several skirts made to adorn the painful. 

On the ground floor of the Museum of the Archconfraternity of Hope are the thrones of the Royal Archconfraternity of the Sweet Name of Jesus of Nazareth of the Passage and Most Holy Mary of Hope. On the same floor we can find the banners made by prestigious painters such as Félix Revello de Toro who has his own museum in Malaga.

The idea of creating a museum of the Archconfraternity of Hope arose in 1975, but it was not until 1988 that the house of the brotherhood finished its work. In 1993, with the presence of the Princess Elena, this space was inaugurated, occupying around 400 square metres.
