The Archaeological Museum of Alicante has rooms dedicated to Prehistory, Iberian culture, Roman culture, Middle Ages, and modern and contemporary cultures. MARQ has over 81,000 pieces of artifacts and is featured with modern aesthetics and top-notch audiovisual media. The museum has three rooms- the Underwater Archaeology room, the Field Archaeology room, and the Urban Archaeology room, where visitors can discover the past through interactive audiovisuals.
Exhibitions and Guided Tours
On your trip to the museum, look out for the guided tours to the permanent exhibition of the MARQ, the basement of the MARQ and also to the exhibition Mayas - the enigmas of the lost cities, where you can study the Mayan culture.
