A very nice museum, going from prehistoric time to early nowadays, in 2 floors and about 6 rooms in total. Local Leonese viewpoint, which makes it somewhat special. Nice views onto the city. For the most part also in English. Wheelchair accessible.

Entrance is free if over age 65, but otherwise only less than 2 Euros. The prehistory and Roman times were very well done with some good artifacts and video displays. There are some nice Roman mosaics. Most exhibits are explained in both Spanish and English,...More

We spent between 1 and 2 hours at the museum. It covers 3 floors, a basement containing coins and tombstones - the first floor containing exhibits on the prehistory and Roman era (which we found especially interesting) and then a floor covering the middle ages...More

It was a delight to find this place - a mixture of modern art and Roman mosaics! And the price was sure right - we even would have paid to see the exhibits. The mosaics were the best - beautiful colors. The museum was almost...More

We started in the basement, and were advised to sit and listen in a room full of monoliths. As we did, we were presented with the idea of life as a passage of time, with only those markers to signify our having been there. Well...More
