  • Good collection. If that would strongly recommend a guide service and audio guides. It would help a lot, the panels become boring after visiting hours. It is free, what is a real wonder.

  • For me it is essential to know the roots of this land and its people. In addition the building is fine. The cloister is stunning.

  • A Museum for the history of the Asturian people since prehistoric times with cave paintings until the reign of Alfonso III.

  • Hidden treasure in the city, with a free admission and a wonderful collection of things to see. It's a must!
  • Excellent, modern museum.
  • The history if Asturias.
  • Oviedo's best kept secret (and it is free)
  • Tremendous. Very well explained. Only one thing to add: it is clear that they do not want to make reference to Toledo. You have a "bargueño" and gets "unknown origin"... you speak bridge of Alcántara, but not a nod to the Toledo and of course several of the inventions of engineering that in Toledo alone were launched... and there is no reference.
