  • It is worth to take a spin through this Museum, which was formerly the convent of San Vicente, the cloister you can see from the windows. surprisingly, so new building with that jewel in its interior. It is a way to soak up a bit of Asturian culture throughout its history.

  • Easy travel this museum tells in a very comfortable and attractive human presence in Asturian areas from prehistory until the middle ages (hour and a half is enough). Old town pedestrian behind the Cathedral and close to the area of taverns and cider houses.

  • A not very big and not many exhibits, Museum where we can give a 'walk' by the prehistoric era, Roman and medieval Asturias amidst magnificent, your sample is part of the monastery of San Vicente. The staging in the Roman area which corresponds to the upper part of the cloisters I thought it was magnificent. It is completely free and your visit does not too long and very much worth

  • 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)
  • Nes plaques nun especifica si una pieza ye la orixinal o non. Nun hay gabinete didáuticu nin guía, como tampoco actividaes pa los nenos. Cada sala ta organizada por un investigador ayén al muséu, polo que tampoco hai homoxeneidá y tampoco ye mui divulgativu. Eso sí, mui inclusivos los vídeos, con audio y sotítulos.
  • I love, I never tire of visiting it, every day I discover an overlooked detail, I recommend it to everyone and your visit is free.

  • It is a large Museum that tells the story of Asturias. Free admission, it is OK for a visit when you do not have a plan. It has free lockers with key to leave things, coats and bags.
