The archeological exhibit provides information on the history of Ciutadella. Interesting also the cranea of the small Balearic fossil goat (Myotragus balearicus), discovered by British female paleontologist Dorothea Bate.The Museum could be more attractive if modern museography resources were used.

No doubt contains some significant archeological finds relating to the Talayotic, Roman, and to a much lesser extent the period of Moorish rule, but could benefit from some 21st century museum presentation techniques. All exhibits are labelled in Catalan; (which is not that difficult to...More

This is a small museum which took me half an hour to get round. The entry fee was 2.46 euros and for that you you received entry plus a comprehensive guidesheet written in English. This was vital because all the signs/explanations in the museum were...More

Nice respite from the heat of the day. Some interesting exhibits. Leaflet available in English but display boards all in Spanish/Catalan. Not too expensive entry. No bags or cameras at all allowed inside - receptionist secures in a (free) locker until you come out.

First off the assistant was very rude and scowling and demanded our coats and bags. She said we had 25 minutes to look round. And quite honestly that was enough for the youngsters. The exhibits were a mixture of fascinating and very dull so they...More

The woman on reception was incredibly rude both to my husband and my 8 year old (unlike everyone else we met on Menorca). No photography allowed in the museum, presumably so people don't find out how small and dull the museum is before they've paid...More

Steep price for one of the only working museums on the Island. The place covers from the oldest of times all the way through the stone age, roman times and medieval era. The exhibits have interesting objects to behold if only you could understand what...More
