Interesting Museum
Oct 2019
Staying in Gijon, we thought we would take a look at this museum as it was only a 1/2 hour walk away. It was effectively empty so we took our time and enjoyed the exhibits. Lots of old stuff and the museum includes full scale houses of yesteryear. The bagpipe display was a highlight.

Take it or leave it

This is a nice way to spend an afternoon if you have time to kill. However, if you only have limited amount of time in Gijón I would recommend giving this experience a miss and instead spend your time in the old town or walking around the Eulogy area.

Nice morning with kids
Jul 2019 • Family
Attended with a 2, 4, and 6 year old. A lot of the museum was out of doors which the kids quite enjoyed. I really like the bagpipe exhibit, had no idea how many types of bagpipes there are around the world. Also a very cool exhibit with 3D photos from the turn of the century. There were houses/graneries that we entered and could see how people used to live.

Most of the descriptions were not in English, but non-Spanish speakers could still come away with an appreciation of the history of the area.

Window into a Different Time and Way of Life

I went with a large group of students to the Museu del Pueblu d'Asturies in Gijon. We enjoyed walking through the open-air exhibits, which included several different horreos (granaries), a typical Asturian home, a cider house, and a mill. The exhibits were beautifully presented, including a display of bagpipes from around the world. My favorite experience, however, was the 3-D film presenting stereoscopic images from Asturias taken around the turn of the twentieth century. Wow!

Beautiful View of Old Asturias!
Jun 2018 • Family
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum. We visited both the main building (3 stories tall) as well as the surrounding houses and horreos. We got to visit the various utensils that the Asturianos used over the last 200-300 years. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the history of the Principado de Asturias.

Good museum for learning about Asturias
Jul 2018 • Family
My children and I went during the free hours on Sunday, and learned a lot about the development of Asturias over the past 150 years. The interior exhibits use a set of domestic themes and show how Asturias changed over time in regards to those, including the move from rural to urban. The exterior exhibits show Asturian architecture, farming, and a sidra-making warehouse. We enjoyed this museum.

A Great Perspective of Asturias History
Feb 2018 • Family
Wonderful outdoor & indoor museum displaying the Asturias architecture and history. In the indoor facility (composed of 3 floors) you can view artifacts, dresses, cuisine, etc. that the "Asturianos" have utilized, worn, eaten, etc. over approximately the last two centuries. And in the outdoor area, you can view the architecture of the Asturias landscape. A great place to visit and enjoy. I highly recommend it.

Beautiful Museum!
May 2017 • Family
Beautiful museum exhibiting all types of artifacts from all around Asturias. Excellent collection laid-out in three floors, plus adjacent buildings (located in the grounds) depicting Asturias living standards from over a century ago. Definitely worth the visit!

Insight into Asturian history
Sep 2016 • Couples
Worth a couple of hours wandering through the this museum to gain an understanding of the history of Asturia. Artefacts from many centuries ago until 1950s and 1960s are on display. It is near the local football stadium which is also worth a look.

Better in the dry
Nov 2015 • Couples
We visited this two years ago during our last visit to Gijon. Then, we'd been soaked to the skin by the endless heavy rain and hadn't really enjoyed the outside sights as much as we wanted. This time, the weather was better and so we were able to look at all the various examples of traditional buildings without being soaked.

Unfortunately, there's still little available in the way of English translation for the non-Spanish visitor and so this does limit the amount of enjoyment and understanding that you can have while you're here. I do wish they'd make more of this museum, it's a good resource and could be great with a little bit more effort.
