This Museum is close enough to the Santa Barbara Castle so that you can do both in a morning.
As an archaeology Museum it is extensive and covers centuries of history. Very interesting with plenty of seats to take a rest when you need to. Some videos are presented to provide additional background. The admission fee at $4.50 is very reasonable.

I love most museums, but the MARQ in Alicante stood out from the many that I have seen. Due to the diversity of cultures that have passed through Alicante, the museum hosts a plethora of different artifacts from the Moors to the Romans and more. Well worth the cost.

I recently visited to check out the current temporary displays featuring a range of topics - Chinese Han dynasty, Peninsular War and Alicante wine. I enjoyed the first 2 especially as the English explanations etc were excellent. However the wine exhibition was only in English. Given the tourism priority in this region I think they should attempt to provide explanations in English as well. But good presentation and displays. The 8 permanent galleries are also well displayed. Nice cafeteria and overall ambience in the place makes for a good visit.

Very disappointing as had been European museum of the year. All exhibits were explained in text in detail in 2 languages. unfortunately these were almost identical, presumably Spanish and Catalan. Surely English or even French would have been a better choice, political correctness I assume. The English audio system was not working. Exhibits we're displayed well but a lot of the interactive exhibits look quite dated now.
