Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares (The Museum of Arts and Traditions in Seville, Andalusia, Spain) is located in the María Luisa Park, across the Plaza de América from the Provincial Archeological Museum.

The museum occupies the Mudéjar Pavilion (Pabellón Mudéjar) built in 1914, and several alterations and additions have been carried out since then. The museum was established by a decree of 23 March 1972, initially as a section of the Museum of Fine Arts of Seville. The permanent exhibition space amounts to 5,496 square meters (18,031 feet).
