“Intimate and intracate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

I stayed in the Parador which is connected to the museum through the breezeway and this was a really nice way to unwind one evening by walking through the museum (and worth the 60p). It makes you feel adn understand the ways that thsi monestary/hospital/etc. has been part of so many people and generations. Beautiful, old carvings and rich paintings are delights.

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Really interesting, takes you through the history of Spain in this region, starting with the section of coins through to contemporary Spain. We learnt some interesting historical facts. Again like the Cathedral very cheap to visit, 1 euro 20 I think. Well worth a visit.

“Historical, philosophical and fun. Worth two visits.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

This museum has so many things to see and do, with interactive and didactic elements interesting to the whole family, that the time just flies. Next to many of the pieces there are quotes by ancient philosophers (all translated into perfect English too) which enhance the visit as you walk through. The entrance fee is only 1.20 euros, and there are four floors to see, videos to watch, etc. It is a fun and mood lifting place.

“A real surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Having gone along expecting a standard museum with lots of things in glass boxes with Spanish descriptions that I couldn't quite decipher, I was pleasantly surprised by Leon's museum. It's recently be built and it showed. Everything's in English as well as Spanish, and it gives a really interesting account of the history of Leon and its region. Particularly striking are its collection of stones with inscriptions in the basement, many of which are Roman.
