Velez-Malaga invites bids to build new museum

CONSTRUCTION work on a new museum in Velez-Malaga has been put out to public tender.

Former Hospital San Juan de Dios is the location chosen to site the new museum.

Work will involve renovating the current structure and will also cover the redevelopment work on Calle Princesa (Torre del Mar) and the Camino de Algarrobo.

These three projects will total a budget of more than €2 million.

“These works are significantly important for our town, and long-awaited by residents,” said Mayor Francisco Delgado Bonilla.

The construction of the town’s new museum will have a budget of €1.2 million, and it is expected to be completed in a period of 11 months.

More than 1,700 items will be displayed in the facility, including archaeological objects, documents and pictures, both from private collections and public museums.

“If a resident has an object they think is worthy of being exhibited at the museum, we will be open to analysing it and placing it amongst the rest of the collection. The museum seeks to highlight some of the most important periods of our town, such us the Catholic Monarchs’ conquest of the town, the Phoenician colonisation, the Roman era, etc,” said the mayor, who added that the structure would be around 1,500 square metres.
