  • We were recently in the exhibition of the Vikings, the Museum is great, the fixed exhibitions are great, unfortunately on this last visit it was day of open doors and Sunday and had a lot of people, I recommend to go any other day the price is very affordable and can be visited with more calm

  • Price reasonable, fixed exhibitions and temporary. Some have a replica so that blind people can touch them. That is very good for children also. Spaces with audiovisual and digital displays. Beautiful garden Café.

  • Certainly one very interesting Museum both by content, but mostly by the continent. The best of the city, and of this size the best Museum that I remember. The most interesting of Alicante is certainly fundamental not to be missed.

  • 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
