“The Power of the Past. 150 Years of Archaeology in Spain”

Head of Augustus. Museum of Zaragoza © Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte The National Archaeological Museum celebrates the 150th anniversary of its foundation and of the network of Spanish archaeological museums with an exhibition on the origins and development of archaeology.

The exhibition includes 150 objects or sets of objects, loaned by 68 institutions, which are true icons of the past and which illustrate an updated, critical overview of the construction of our past through archaeology.

Similarly, the exhibition also demonstrates the dual mission of archaeological museums: on one hand, to document, conserve, and display material objects and remains; and on the other, to present and share knowledge of the past, making it accessible to laypeople.

The museum offers guided tours and self-guided tours for groups of 10 to 20 people, registering in advance.
