If you're in Oviedo on holiday or on business, then a visit to the Archaeological Museum will be rewarding and helpful in understanding the long history of the Principality. There's a vast amount to see with interactive presentations. Spanish museums in general are very well run and interesting even for young people. The are also concerts of great quality on certain days and the possibility of old monastic buildings that now house the museum. Entrance is free.

An extensive modernization of a 17th century monastery - the building alone is worth a look through.
Entry is gratis and you can borrow an informative booklet which provides translations of most of the key information panels throughout the museum.
Well designed presentations and there are even places to sit down and read your booklet along the way.

I wander in and found it was free on the day of my visit. I only thought about spending half an hour but ended up spending more than one and half hours! This museum's exhibition is very well organized. Its bilingual signs describe the detailed history of the region of Asturias, from Roman period, Medieval period, through later Spanish empire. It is all quite informative and many artifacts in its collection is impressive for a regional museum.

Fascinating museum, but you'll need the paper guide (from reception) to understand it in English. Very well laid out, and the staff are exceptionally helpful.

Wonderful - everything a modern museum should be - light and spacious, with masses of interest and variety, a big modern lift, and sensitive, well-thought-out, imaginative displays (very little technical language, but no talking down to people either, which succeeds in being interesting to children (but leaving them free to imagine for themselves) without seeming childish. Above all the staff are friendly, understanding and obviously proud of their museum.

Last summer we had visited this museum and found it very interesting so this summer we took my brother and sister-in-law and they too were very enthusiastic. It is open, light and bright and has several floors of exhibits. It is is the center of the city, so easily accessible by foot and there is no entry charge. I highly recommend you visit.

We visited the museum today and were pleased to find that it was free entry. We were each lent a guide book that translated the main explanatory descriptions of the history of the region.

There were lockers to put bags in so you didn't carry them around (1Euro - returnable at the end).

The exhibits were well presented and very informative and it was an excellent visit. However it is a good idea to check the opening times before you visit as these differ on different days of the week.

The museum is a treasure of interactive experiences. Then, during the summer, we were treated to free classical music concerts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. What a wonderful introduction to all Oviedo has to offer.

We enjoyed this museum. Covered history of the asturias region including cavemen, Roman Era and more.

It's free so if you don't like it you can leave.

Mostly in Spanish which was good as I am trying to have my family practice our spanish.

Very interesting museum, definitely worth the visit, Right behind the gorgeous Cathedral in Oviedo. Not hard to find at all. Lots of interesting displays, very enjoyable, and no entrance fee. Guides in all languages that you can borrow and return to the front desk. Definitely worth the visit.
