  • Very nice exibits and good information
  • Spectacular pieces that you don't expect in a municipal museum. Cylindrical idols, the Greek town (the best preserved in Europe), the beautiful caliphal tableware... You can not miss it. And all very well ordered and explained

  • Finally reopened to the public, after about 20 years closed. Very interesting story that tells of the city. The only "but" is the location, is in a neighborhood in which need rehabilitation

  • If you are near you have to go, it has free guided by friends the Museum volunteers who multiplied by 10 the experience. Few works but very significant and put in context. It is worth mentioning the Greek helmet found as an offering to the river. You moved 3000 years in time
