Museum-Treasure of the Brotherhood of the Expiration

Christ of the Expiration

A museum of modern construction with a large space dedicated to processional thrones. The Museum of the Brotherhood of the Expiration has its own chapels, attached to the church of San Pedro,

The Brotherhood of the Christ of the Expiration and Most Holy Mary of Sorrows Crowned has its origins in the 18th century, although it acquired more importance from 1920 when the two original brotherhoods were unified into one.

The Christ of the Expiration museum was inaugurated in 1968 and is divided into four rooms where you can see the Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Malaga.

The first room of the Christ of the Expiration Museum in Malaga is the chapel of San Pedro itself, where the images of the brotherhood can be found.

The second room is called “De los Tronos” (Of the Thrones), where we can find the thrones and belongings that procession on Holy Wednesday. In one of its showcases is exposed the mantle of the Virgin.

In the third is the souvenirs and objects that the brotherhoods exchange.

The last room is called “El Tesoro de la cofradía” and is made up of processional sayas, ex-votos of cofrades and the dagger of the Virgin, among other objects.

The brotherhood house was built in the 1960s where the museum has its headquarters, annexed to the church of San Pedro de Malaga. A 5-storey building.
