A journey through history

The museum contains important archaeological remains.

It is located in the broad Alameda Sundheim Avenue. It has two major sections: Archaeology and Fine Arts. The items on display take visitors on a journey back through the history of Huelva, from the Neolithic period through to Roman times. It has an interesting collection of Roman mining materials from Riotinto, with objects such as a waterwheel - the only one of its type that can be seen in Spain, and one of only a few in the world. The Fine Art section contains works by contemporary local artists.
