    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.

  • 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.
  • It is located in the market of the East of Santander, in the Centre of the city. It has a rich heritage of great importance for the world, with Paleolithic collections and unique artistic manifestations. The Museum staff is charming and very professional and diverse. We also attended a workshop of prehistoric stamping kids and we loved the treatment, speech and educational methodology. Congratulations!

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.
