The museum also shows several showcases with late nineteenth and early twentieth century tools. On the first floor, the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre of Malaga has at the disposal of visitors to the museum an art gallery with Malaga paintings from the early nineteenth century to the present day. It also has the Columbarium Hall of the Brotherhood where is a Dolorosa of the eighteenth century.

The brotherhood house is the headquarters of this museum which processions its steps on Good Friday and whose symbol is the cross of Jerusalem.

On the ground floor is the throne room. The throne of Christ and that of the Virgin of Solitude. This space is completed with two rooms.

The great part of the Museum of the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre leaves in procession on Good Friday. After the Christ, the Chopin Funeral March is played, while the Virgen de la Soledad is escorted by the Spanish Marine Infantry interpreting the Salve Marinera.

This space is located next to the Students’ Museum, sharing Alcazabilla Street, in front of the Roman Theatre and the Alcazaba of Malaga, undoubtedly a strategic place in the centre of Malaga.
