The Museo Arqueológico contains thousands of pre-historic artifacts and remains from ancient civilizations based in Italy, Greece, Cyprus, and Egypt. One of the highlights is the museum's reproduction of the Altamira caves in northern Spain with their fascinating pre-historic cave paintings. There is a research library as well as video and slide-show facilities.
This museum is just enough off the beaten path that you'll need to make a special point to get there. If you have any interest at all in Archeology, this is a must. From the most ancient stone age, through all of Spain's cultural evolution it is there. Exhibits are well designed, readily toured and there are maps and details in each area. This museum is also open fairly late most evenings so it makes it easy to squeeze in after a business meeting!
