Seems as if it would be a nice little local museum, but mention that it was closed until November seems to have been a mystery to the locals, and was omitted from the website, so unable to make a judgement.

Firstly this is a 1 room museum just to set expectations. Entry was less than 3 euros. The collection is held in a fabulously cool room at the top of the fort that makes up part of the old city walls. There are 28 cases...More

This is a small museum and covers Talayotic history from about 1500 BCE to the roman era. It is a good way to learn about the early history of Minorca. It is free on Wednesdays.

The archeological exhibit provides information on the history of Ciutadella. Interesting also the cranea of the small Balearic fossil goat (Myotragus balearicus), discovered by British female paleontologist Dorothea Bate.The Museum could be more attractive if modern museography resources were used.
