Through the valuable objects in its collection, the museum offers a journey into the history of these two islands, from prehistory through to the Christian re-conquest. It is situated in Dalt Vila, in Eivissa's area of monuments, and occupies several different buildings.
The permanent exhibition displays objects covering more than 3,000 years of history and is divided into six themes: Prehistory, Phoenician Colonisation, Punic Times, High Roman Empire Times, Low Roman Empire Times and Late Antiquity, and Moorish Medieval Times. The museum also has an annex in the necropolis of Puig des Molins, with a display of the funeral rites left on the island by three civilisations: Phoenician, Punic and Roman.
The museum's collection is part of the collective catalogue of the Digital Network of Spanish Museum Collections (CERES), conceived as a space for dissemination which enables visitors to browse the various museum collections using the identifying features of each item (author, type of object, iconography, etc.).
