The museum is a treasure of interactive experiences. Then, during the summer, we were treated to free classical music concerts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. What a wonderful introduction to all Oviedo has to offer.

We enjoyed this museum. Covered history of the asturias region including cavemen, Roman Era and more. It's free so if you don't like it you can leave. Mostly in Spanish which was good as I am trying to have my family practice our spanish.
