  • 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!
  • Oviedo's best kept secret (and it is free)
  • The oldest Museum of Asturias has been able to renew itself and in addition to the exposed funds that are very much worth, they do so it is fun to go with the children. It's worth and is free.
