  • I found this museum as one of the best archaeological museums that you can visit in Spain, both for its outstanding content specially didactic form is displayed. How to render the objects and the use of the media make that the visit is an adventure. Special mention deserves the part dedicated to the Palaeolithic in all its stages. Impressive and absolutely recommended. For me a 10 out of 10.

  • You must go and visit this museum! This museum is one of the very best in Spain of this type. They have multilingual boards for almost everything. Their prehistoric is wonderful and they use a lot of technology. While not as big as the one in Madrid they have many amazing pieces. My favorite is the 500-1000ad. Very good collection. At the end there is a lovely exhibit of photographs in video form that goes from the caves to the medieval churches.
  • Very insightful museum, very tourist friendly. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area and a fan of history.
  • Great museum. Everything is well showcased in an excellent way. You see a lot of things and learn a lot all in an easy peasy way. It depicts the history of mankind in the area from the begining to the occupation of the Romans in Cantabria. Videos and representations are easy to watch and very useful! Really worth a visit!
  • One of the best museums I've been to. You learn about archeology, human evolution, Roman occupation in Cantabria. It's a lot to take in but very much educational and entertaining.
  • Very interesting, interactive museum. I thought, it is another one of the same old same old prehistorical museum, but this is definitely worth to visit if you're in the area.

Where to stay in Santander

For views over the water and a wide selection of restaurants, consider staying near the Puerto Chico, or "little port," area. Lodging on the historical Camino de Santiago en Santander street puts you in the path of many of the city's walking tours. The streets that jut off Alameda de Oviedo are full of markets, cafes, and shops that put you in the middle of activity.
