It was very interesting considering Almerias history. I would have liked to have spent more time there biscuit as on a short break you have to spread your time around

Easy to find, FREE and everything is in English. It isn't huge and not very exciting but there are lots of interactive things for the kids and it is clean, tidy and interesting

The column in the middle is amazing, especially the side where they have a series of screens which depict artistic photographs which move and act as a... More

The building is worth a visit just for the building itself, as it is just as interesting and enjoyable just to wander around, admiring it, as it is to look at the exhibits (it's a museum of archaelogy).

An interesting place to wander around at leisure, although you could miss it driving around the city, as it is in what appears to be a housing area. They have used interesting and innovative ways to describe the passage of time and the whole place is clean and well signed.
