We were the only people in the museum when we went. . They had to put the lights on for us as the place was in darkness we thought it was shut! Once inside we were directed to the top floor to see the aging process and history of the region. But the best bits we thought were outside. The... More

Whether you are a tourist or a resident of Asturias you should visit this museum. It has a fantastic collection of objects that reflect the day to day life of the people of Asturias, including the gaita, a cider press,(of course) farming and household implements and a really impressive collection of 3D black and white photos from the late 1800s,...

At first I thought that only someone interested in antiques would like this much... but then I went out to the little buildings and just loved the musical instruments. There were all kind of instruments, but I particularly liked the la gaita, or bag pipes, from around the world. As you look at the different artifacts from about 150 years... More

We visited this during our trip during November. It's a reasonable walk out from the main area of town, close to the football stadium and you can walk along the river, which can be a pleasant walk. However, when we went there, it was raining very heavily and so, it wasn't the best day to visit an open air museum.... More

Great museum covering all sorts of Asturian cultural practices (there's a sidra house, for example). If you head out into the countryside wondering what on Earth all those weird stilted wooden huts are, you only have yourself to blame for not visiting this informative museum!
