We learned a lot about this area's long history from early man, Roman, Visigoth, and Medieval times. We were given a proper English brochure to walk the 4 floors of excellent displays; Iron Age implements, Roman mosaics/amphora, early farming tools, and even a Bourgeois dollhouse. This free museum had excellent rooftop views of the Cathedral and the St Martin Tower.... More

We were lucky to be in Teruel during a photography festival and this museum hosted one of the best collections I have seen of the Spanish photographer Forcano. It was a real treat and free. The museum itself has a lovely, small collection and we were unusually offered some interesting information about some of the exhibits by a museum guide.

We mostly went there for the view you have from the roof top terrace. Sadly, the day we went, the terrace was filled by a huge air tube which was supposed to be art, but which blocked every possible view. The museum however is nice if you like history and ceramics.

Reading some articles of Teruel before we came, we wanted to spend some hours in this museum to get the "right" information about this small city, making a change during the Spanish civil war, with one of the biggest battles during the war, killing more than 80000 solders at a place of Spain without any importance for the war.

If you want to while away an hour in Teruel the Museo is the place to go. Lots of exhibits from the Iberian and Cartheginian eras. All in Spanish so those without the lingo will have to guess a bit. Like all provincial museums in Spain entry is free. The museum building is almost as interesting as the exhibits. The... More

We were staying in the Teruel area for a couple of days on our way up to Normandy. We had a tourist day in Teruel and viewed this very pleasant hillside city. The real discovery of the day was the town museum located in a square behind the cathedral. This small museum was a real pleasure to visit for the... More

The beautiful building that the Museo Provincial occupies was built in 1542 by the Masters Juan de Rigol and Pedro de Heredia. The style of the façade is the Renaissance Mannerist style, with a very simple style. Atop the four stories of the building is a gallery with round arches, and this breaks the severity of the façade. We went... More
