This museum is central, amazingly is free and is housed in the most beautiful building. We spent a good 2 hours there and were so glad we did as it is so interesting and all the exhibits have an explanation in English.

Thoroughly enjoyed this museum also. The Archeology exhibits are a 10!......for us the Art exhibits were a 9! Entry was 1.5 euro/pp and worth every "penny".

We didn't have time to give this place full justice, but we were very impressed with the building and what had been done to it. The exhibits were very well displayed in lots of space, we saw the art collection which was very good.

Some really stunning collections and interesting exhibits are housed within this well organised museum. We visited particularly to see Enrique Simonet Lombardo's "Anatomy of the heart" but found many more things to also enjoy.
