History Museum
MARQ Provincial Archaeological Museum is an award-winning museum featuring archeological displays about the residents of this area. Located in a renovated historical building that was once a hospital, its eight galleries educate you on lives of the past, from ancient to modern times. The rooms are designed in different forms according the time period, so you’ll experience everything from caves to a sailing ship known as a galleon. Videos and interactive computer programs are fun ways to learn here, but consider taking a guided tour if you can’t read in Spanish. Temporary exhibits are often traveling through, so check the website in advance.

  • Highly recommended to go with children because they resemble a game rather than your boring concept of visit Museum. In the central part there are 3 fully themed rooms that make the tour of the Museum in a fun and educational adventure in the world of archaeology. The food at the restaurant of the Museum also recommended
