The Archaeological Museum is located in a recently reconstructed modern building, which houses interesting collections of valuable works from prehistory to the Muslim period. This was inaugurated in 2006; in 2008, it received honourable mention for European Museum of the Year.
In the museum, there is an extensive catalogue with a great variety of Roman and Arab coins, inscribed headstones, Arab jewels and utensils found in the province. One of the rooms of this museum is dedicated to the first livestock and agricultural societies, the prehistoric society of Los Millares, while in other rooms we can find sculptures such as the Statue of Dionisios, found in Chirivel.
Inside it, in addition to the continuous exhibition, other activities such as conferences, traveling exhibitions and festivals are carried out.
