World Tourism Day: A Great Opportunity to Visit Malaga’s Museums and Attractions for Free  

World Tourism Day Málaga 2018

Next Wednesday 27th September 2018 is World Tourism Day and to celebrate this special occasion, Malaga Town Hall, in conjunction with the city’s main museums and monuments, has prepared a special events programme.

This initiative – promoted by the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) – aims to raise awareness of the important impact tourism has on countries and communities around the world; socially, culturally, politically and economically. This year’s event goes under the following slogan: Tourism and the digital transformation. 

“We know that a digitally advanced tourism sector can improve entrepreneurship, inclusion, local community empowerment and efficient resource management, amongst other important development objectives. This year’s WTD will help us to further explore the opportunities provided to tourism by technological advances including big data, artificial intelligence and digital platforms.” – www.un.org

To celebrate this unique day, many of Malaga’s top tourist attractions will be celebrating an ‘Open Day’ with free entrance – at certain times of the day – to their facilities for all who visit. Some of the participating museums and monuments will also offer free guided tours (see below for details).
