The bottom floor of the museum does a very good job in outlining the history of the region. It also contains interesting archeological findings, such as the two "stars" of the museum--the Phoenician sarcophegi. There is a robust collection of paintings and other art on...More

Situated in the center of the city this is a smallish museum but has a good range of subject matter on view from local archaeology to a varied art collection. All well laid out in this pleasant modern building.

A small museum with something for everyone - archeological finds, 18th century oil painting, and don't miss the marionettes on the top floor.

What an interesting museum with a range of exhibits! The Phoenician sarcophagi, the Murillo and Zurbaran pieces, and the 19th-20th century puppet theaters are all very memorable.

It was a useful and quite interesting visit. Unfortunately just a few plates in the exposition have English descriptions. But it's god that the city maintains this museum.

Its an odd museum reallly. Fine art (upstairs) and statues (downstairs). Exhibits range from mediaeval art to modern Miro. There is little background and information available but there are some important Spanish arists exhibited here, and it tracks the development of art from religious iconic...More
