We were very pleasantly surprised with the museum. It is very complete, encompassing the full history of Leon. The artifacts are incredibly interesting and shows the progression of cultures that occupied Leon. Recommend that you take about two hours to enjoy the museum.

This Museam tells the history of Leon back through Roman time to the present. Probably more aimed at educational gruops for schools ect. It is very cheap and you can spend a couple of hours here. Useful on a rainy day.

A very interesting museum giving a through the ages experience. Some fascinating geological and physical history alongside the artefacts and paintings. Great value for only 1.20 euros!

i particularly liked the exhibit showing some of the many architectural treasures and what they look like today; they range from lovely restorations, to being leveled and turned into a shopping mall.
