  • Admission is free and its opening hours are very wide (from 9:00 to 21:00). It has a souvenir shop and all the museum staff was extraordinarily friendly. It took us about an hour to visit. It is not allowed to take videos, but you can take photos without flash. It is a very large building for the content it hosts. I suppose the idea is to expand the number of 'pieces exposed as they appear in new excavations in iberian deposits, but at the moment there is only a large room with display cases with sculptures and figurines basically, quite deteriorated many of them. There is a room with high quality photographs of one of the pieces that are exhibited in the other room, which being large allow to better appreciate the details of the iberian figurines that are later seen. In another area there were explanatory panels and photographs related to cave paintings. Among the pieces exhibited there are some very interesting but I missed some explanation that contextualized them in the culture in which they were produced; although the Iberan culture is still quite unknown they could try to bring in a didactic way how little is known about it. The contents of the museum are fine, but the building has plenty of space gives the feeling. Looks like the goal was to make a building and then we'll see what we're exposing in it. And already having an exclusive museum for the Ibera culture, if you do not have too many pieces, you could fill the space with audiovisual or interactive content as they do in other modern museums. This visit is fine for anyone who is passionate about history or archaeology, but for the general public it may not be of particular interest

  • The Museum of Jaén is a deeply disappointing visitor. A large building, of empty appearance, q lacks permanent funds and despite its name, exposes only a few pieces of the Abera culture, no d special relevance and most in a terrible state of conservation. The explanatory texts are parcos d of the small quality, and to top it all off, not even a solid description of the culture is dedicated. In short, it is not worth the visit.
