  • This great much better explained than in the previous location. We will come back safe. Also Sundays from 17:00 to 20:00 is free. A perfect plan for rain Sunday.

  • Explanations in french all along the way over time. There are lots of videos and interactive screens to illustrate the techniques used by prehistoric men. Takes from 1 h 30 to make the tour and everything look.

  • Directly behind the mercado. Museums are poorly indicated on signposts, but this is worth it. Beautiful spotlight, unfortunately little accompanying takst in English.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A spectacular Museum! Very well organized, with modern technology to visualize your content and interact with visitors. The descriptions are written in Spanish, English and French, which is appreciated. The information is communicated in a fun way, and use questions to start each chapter. Essential for the lovers of history / archaeology, or those who simply wish to have a fun and educational time.
