Alicante Provincial Archaeological Museum

This is the city's museum of archeology. An old hospital was remodeled into a brand new and modern museum. One can see the history of Alicante, from ancient times to modern times. The exhibits in this museum are very well done and explain history very well. This museum is one of the best in Spain and it received international recognition as the 2004 European Museum of the Year for the "originality and intelligent approach" of its exhibits.
