  • This is another large museum, and well curated too. The Iberian peninsula has been settled for a long time, even before Homo sapiens appeared. The museum mostly tells the story chronologically from a ...  more »
  • Saturday afternoon and Sunday is free. The audioguide costs 2 euros and is an interactive tablet. The basic course lasts at least two hours. Fantastic multimedia points in all rooms of the Museum.

  • Many wanted to see it for a long time, but I had not had the opportunity. I has not let down at all, your tour by Spain, from prehistoric times to our days, having 2 collections apart from Egypt and Greece. Boasts some spectacular audiovisual that serve as introduction to what you will see in the room or sitting area. It has very important and difficult to find pieces which have given much information from the daily life of different populations at different times. I just have to put two buts, esper or in brief, they are served to make this perfect visit: is a very educational and enjoyable journey. The videoguides are fine, but should have a guide service available to the public without having to book it in advance, but for hours, to see it from another perspective. Similarly, all all the audiovisual material that exists the Museum, cannot be purchased in the gift shop in audiovisual format (for example, on CD). If this were so, I am sure that the Museum would be an important source of income since many people ask for this material every day. In short, I was delighted and repeat another day without problems.

  • Very good for families and solo travelers! Interesting exhibits in a very clear and clean layout with English captions. Great facilities too! Free entry after 2pm is a great addition too!
  • It's nice place. A classical museum with touches of modern (interactive) approach here and there. Going to real places (if you can) adds more to the experience, though.
  • Best History and Archeology museum I've ever visited ! It's really impressive how much we can learn about the world's, Spain's and the Mediterranean's History in there. I visited in 90mn because it was closing after but I advise you to take at least 2h, or even 3h to take your time. Free admission on Saturday afternoon !
  • Amazing and interesting for anyone who likes history and archeology. Excellent visiting experience with rich information that suits experts and non experts alike. I usually get bored about such kind of topics but the excellent media, visuals, and writings made it a very smooth and interesting visit.
  • Beautiful museum! And super interesting. It was renovated in 2014 and the result is impressive. But it is huge so plan ahead a chunck of time.
