“Many different exhibits with English and Spanish translations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Very beautiful and interesting. The museum was quiet and easy to explore, and the gift shop and cafe were nice as well, although slightly expensive.

“Informative history/culture displays.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I walked to the museum from my hotel (Alicante) in La Sultana & it has a nice series of displays about the culture & history of the area--displays on agricultural development, cacao. coffee, maize, for example. I recall that the exhibitions are signed only in spanish but the message is still discernable by english only speakers.
There was at the time (nov 2012) a special exhibition on the women (leftist) during the civil war (1980-92), something of an oral history (then & now) which was fascinating.
The gift shop has an excellent cultural/historical map for $10, which is notable both for framing but for my purposes, was the best road map I have been able to obtain.
