Seville's Museum of Art and Popular Customs of Sevillewas created in 1972. The museum is dedicated to the ethnological heritage of Andalusia, both material and human. The objects and utensils on display document the customs, wisdom and ways of life of the traditional culture in the area.

It is set in the Mudejar Pavilion designed by architect Aníbal González for the 1929 Spanish-American Exhibition.

Its most important collections are devoted to ceramics, clothing and craft activities in Andalusia. Other important collections include the Aguiar collection of Costumbrist painting, the Soria collection of Oriental ivory and pottery, the Gestoso ceramics collection and, in particular, the Díaz Velázquez collection of lace and embroidery, one of the most important in Europe, the 6,000 items of which could fill a separate, specialist museum on their own. Seville's Council has also deposited its collection of original posters for the city's Spring Fair with the museum. Additions over the last decade include the acquisition of the Loty collection, comprising over 2,000 pieces of antique glassware with details of the city and the Andalusian way of life, from the beginning of the 20th century to 1936, two collections of toys and one of over 7,000 postcards.

The first floor of the museum is temporarily closed for refurbishment. The current refurbishment plans are justified not only by the natural ageing of the museum since it was opened in 1972, but also because the museum's approach had become a little dated, and it needed new facilities to improve the experience for visitors and the safety of the objects displayed.

The central room on the main floor of the Museum - the ground floor - is dedicated to temporary exhibitions.

In addition to the temporary and permanent exhibitions, the facilities open to the public include a recreation of a Huelva wine cellar, an audiovisual suite where visitors can watch documentaries on traditional Andalusian lifestyles, a room for educational activities and a library, specialising in anthropology and museums. There is also a computer station which can be used to view the Loty photography collection.
