Worth a couple of hours wandering through the this museum to gain an understanding of the history of Asturia. Artefacts from many centuries ago until 1950s and 1960s are on display. It is near the local football stadium which is also worth a look.

Excellent museum but spoiled for foreign visitors by an almost total lack of translation into any other language. If you can speak and, more importantly read Spanish, then it is fascinating. Spent a whole morning there and could have been there longer.

We visited this during our trip during November. It's a reasonable walk out from the main area of town, close to the football stadium and you can walk along the river, which can be a pleasant walk. However, when we went there, it was raining...More

Great museum covering all sorts of Asturian cultural practices (there's a sidra house, for example). If you head out into the countryside wondering what on Earth all those weird stilted wooden huts are, you only have yourself to blame for not visiting this informative museum!
