Reviewed November 28, 2012

The exhibit on the history of the area was engaging and well curated for the low low cost of 3 euros!

“MARQ”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

One of the best Archaeological museums I've visited. Clear, well explaned, interesting exhibits that give a feel for how things were and how people lived. A 5-star museum.

“Vary thoughtful use of a historic building”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We visited during our stay in Benidorm using the Alicante tram system (worth a review in itself). The exhibits are splendidly displayed, marking events and artifacts going back to prehistoric times. One slight drawback is that none of the exhibits have an English translation.

“A fascinating place”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

How boring a subject - bits of old, dug up stuff? But it wasn't. Wonderfully displayed and explained history. Well worth the walk or tram ride from the city centre.
