A beautiful little city museum, well worth a visit. Free (on Sunday, anyway), and take a headset for 1E. Full of beautiful artefacts, it explores the history of the city and its Moorish background. Closed Mondays.
Visited on a Sunday morning in August. Sundays are free admission. The museum is a delight, exhibits are well set out and display many artefacts from the Roman period, including a stunning bronze figure of a young boy 'the Ephebe of Antequera', unearthed in the fields hereabouts. The top floor is dedicated to works by the local artist Cristobal Toral,... 更多
The Antequera city museum is housed in two large buildings on a large square in the town center, with a statue of King Alfonso I on horseback in the middle. It is a very fine museum and offers a good impression of the history and arts of this attractive city with a population of 43,000. Antequera is a popular tourist... 更多
At €3 entry this was an excellent visit. Recalling the local history from Roman times to modern times. Give yourself at least 2 hours to get around.
Things in glass cases, things on walls, minimum interpretation and nowhere to sit. For me the best part of the museum was the building and how the original palace has been juxtaposed with a very modern structure. It works. As for the collection, I was left cold. Sorry.
Visited here on a rainy day and was a good way to spend a couple of hours. As long as you like history, architecture and art you will find this place interesting. There are a number of signs in English but could do with more. The museum is spread over four floors but there are lifts accessing all floors so... 更多
Rarely can you see such an impressive collection of Roman remains in a small town municipal museum. This fantastically modernised museum houses a collection ranging from the early Bronze Age inhabitants of the area right through to a stunnig collection of the modern art of the region. All periods in between are represented by an impressive collection of artefacts and... 更多
Ok but do not go out of your way to visit it. Few English signs, dusty displays, not well maintained. Poor toilet facilities. Bizarre opening times.
This is a great place to spend a couple of hours if you like history and archaeology. The Roman section was particularly interesting and informative. There was also an exhibition of modern painting on the top level. The building is well lit, the exhibits are fiven plenty of space and when it's very hot outside it's a good place to... 更多
Lovely setting for a museum. Well laid out and accessible over four floors with pre history and Roman periods the best. However, disappointed that the 700 years of Moor influence and settlement was ignored almost completely. The top half of the building celebrates the work of two local artists.
