Well laid out and very interesting

Great museum, free for EU passport holders. Archaeology section is very well represented. Also interesting paintings by not so 'world famous' artists.

First there is a fine arts museum that is very extensive and shows the history of painting and sculpture of Spain, with very famous artists represented.
