Went in after walking through the park. It is adjacent to the park, and is very low profile so you may walk by it! It was 3 Euro entry/pp, very reasonable. There appeared to be 2 sides to it, on being about the archeological and ancient history of the area, and the 2nd side being mostly artwork by regional artists, it was the 40th anniversary of the Museo de Albacete in 2018, and I think the artistic area was a holdover from that, I think that they do change the artists and artworks but not sure when or how often. It was smallish for a Museo, but was interesting, and a good way to spend an hour or so. When we were there on a Saturday mid morning, it was very quiet, there may have been 2 other people in browsing.

We were impressed by this museum and if you enjoy Spanish history and architecture, you will also be impressed. In the earlier part of the holiday we had seen many museums but this one stood out. I loved the ivory and amber articulated dolls.

Walked to thr museum located on the soyth side of Parque Urbano Aberlado Sanches - free entry on Thursdays. The museum has over 50 %of its space dedicated to archeological exhibits, with a huge collection of ceramics. There are items from the paleolithic period, through neolithic and then ancient Roman. Also an interesting display of antique measuring instruments, but would have helped if there were explanations as to their purpose. All signage is in Spanish so a real disadvantage for non Spanish speakers. Also an art collection.

This is a small, regional museum with two main sections: prehistory of Albacete (archeology) and modern painting (a painter from Albacete who mimicked just about every painting style of the 20th century). If you are in Albacete and are looking for something to do, this is a good option. Otherwise, unless you are a history buff, you might be bored. That said, if you know Spanish history or pre-history in general, the artifacts are outstanding.

Housed in a building inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and nestled in Albacete's largest city park this is a museum that could easily be missed during your visit to the provincial capital. It is however, not to be missed. It displays some of the finest archeological treasures this side of Spain. From Roman dolls thousands of years old to ancient gold coins found buried in the soil anyone who loves history or quiet architectural spaces will love a visit to this museum. Hint: call ahead to reserve the guided tour especially if you have children. They will love it and so will you (if you can understand Spanish that is). The province of Albacete is a source of vast archeological treasures, the finest of which are to be found in the national archeological museum in Madrid but the Albacete museum manages to hold it's own in that respect as well. Have a look.
