You'll see artifacts from the Visigoths, Italians, Spaniards, Vikings, Saracens, Celts, Romans, Greeks, and Etruscans. The museum has become a major center of historical research and education, and offers a range of tours and workshops for different ages and interests.

  • Friendly staff. Very interesting to discover the surroundings, the history of the city and of the exhibits.

  • We went to this museum on the occasion of the heritage days. There were a lot of people, but nevertheless we could well approach various exhibits: amphorae, vases of all kinds, weapons, and jewelry or statuettes, more or less old. The tour is very interesting, however it is a pity that there is no more panels...

  • Count 1: minimum 30 for visiting this beautiful Museum, rich of treasures of all kinds: anchors, weapons (guns, guns...), amphorae, scale models, statuettes, jewellery, etc. Everything is well explained on panels and through the audioguide on shipwrecks, discoveries and the use of objects, protected, set in value. Of course, the Ephebe, Caesarion and Eros are the nails of the collection, beautiful, moving. Museum that will appeal to the large and small: a beautiful page in the history of humanity. A tiny little parking, have to park on that advised next to motor homes, but it's not far! Disappointed however with products sold in the shop, including postcards and the turnkey, not up to this rich heritage. Normal 6 euro, cheap price for this beautiful Museum whose maintenance must be pharaonic.
