THE Municipal Archaeological Museum of Lorca Celebrates his 29th anniversary.

The museum first opened its doors on March 7 in 1992 in what was a much awaited and anticipated addition to the city of Lorca. The opening saw people gather in the Plaza de Don Juan Moreno. The museum was officially opened when the ribbon was cut by Carlos Collado Mena, the President of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia along with José Antonio Gallego López, the Mayor of Lorca.

The museum is located in the centre of Lorca and the building dates from the late 16th to early 17th century.

The museum helps visitors travel “from the Palaeolithic through to the construction of Lorca Castle, including Romanisation”, it also showcases the “Iberian and Moorish cultures” according to Spain info.
