Expert review of National Archaeological Museum
One of Spain's most important museums, there is a lot more than archaeological finds on display here. The museum has been undergoing a much-needed overhaul for the last few years, so some sections may be closed.
Exhibits date back to the Bronze Age, and also deal with the ancient cultures of the Balearic and Canary Islands. The most important piece in the museum is the Lady of Elche, an Iberian sculpture from 4 BC which was found at the end of the 19th century in Elche in the south-east of the country. There are also extensive Roman, Visigothic and Moorish displays.
Outside, an underground space contains a replica of the Altamira caves in Cantabria.
