You don't expect to find a museum of such quality in a small town like Carceres, but its there. The fascinating exhibits give you a glimpse into life in this area centuries ago. Take your camera. Photos are allowed!

This was a really nice stop in our visit. It has small but really interesting collections of Archaeological, Ethnography and Fine Arts (including sketches of Picasso, an El Greco and a Miró). The big highlight is the very well preserved Islamic cistern - Aljibe. When...More

The small museum provides an excellent overview of the history of the town and region with some wonderful Roman, Phoenician and Visigoth relics. The jewellery was particularly impressive.

This is a nice little museum, if you are into this kind of stuff. It was recommended by the Tourist Office as a must see, but we felt that it was just OK.

It's free to many categories of people, it has great air conditioning, the aljibe is large and wonderful, and the upstairs, where they have costumes is jaw-dropping if you like that kind of thing. I do! Also, the everyday items used was fascinating-how people made...More

Good place to visit and some English information always useful if unusual in many places in Spain. As other's have said the building is very interesting in it's own right and the Arab bath/ cistern is amazing though why with LED under-lighting I'm not sure.

A must see, small but interesting. Moorish baths in basement very well conserved. It is free to visitors.
