  • The place has a fascinating variety of items, mainly with a local association. We struggled with the audio guides (listening in english). The commentary for the interactive rooms felt long-winded and then the devices gave up when we were about to tour the exhibits - at the precise moment they would have been useful.
  • MARQ is a great archaeological museum that takes you on a historical journey from Alicante’s prehistory to modern historical times. Interactivity and very nice presentations make it interesting for families with schoolkids too.
  • Whole family really enjoyed the exhibition we saw here. Signs were in English as well as Spanish.
  • Decepcionante. Esperaba más.
  • Good visit.. 2 hours of nice time if you are interested in archeology and history on Alicante
