  • A very interesting Museum, seems newly renovated and very original. You don't have many people and that makes the visit quiet.

  • It is an interesting Museum whose visit is not barren and can be fun. The reform carried out in the building not distorted its essence. Interesting for family.

  • Big surprise! They recommended us visit in the tourist office and I thought "does not appear me much to see a museum with archaeological fragments"... thank goodness I made case! The building is very nice: they have joined an old building and one modern, in a solution aesthetically very good and functional stunning. Offers some temporary exhibition, in our case a ceramics-related think that St. Camillus and a tour of the Asturian history from prehistory to the middle ages. Rather than expose objects, the visit is an experience. Many and varied audio-visual resources for reconfiguring a narrative story since the first settlers, through the Roman period and configuration of the Astur Kingdom are. Very good idea go considering elements of interaction visitors along the tour. Free entrance.

  • 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.
