Museo Arqueologico in Alicante

The Alicante Archaeological Museum is an award-winning museum presenting archaeological exhibitions on the inhabitants of the area. The museum is situated in a restored historic building that was once a hospital. It includes eight galleries showing life in Alicante in the past - from antiquity to the present day. The rooms are designed in different styles according to the period - from caves to a sailing ship called a galleon. Films and interactive computer programmes are a great addition to the tour, but those who don't speak Spanish can also choose the presence of a guide. Temporary exhibitions often appear here, so it’s worth keeping an eye on their website.

Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Alicante

The museum offers three permanent art collections which can be admired in the oldest government building in the city. The highlight of the attraction is the collection of Juan Francés, which was donated to the museum directly from the artist. The collection of this local artist includes prints, paintings and sketches that are delightful and intriguing both in shape and texture. The Baroque government building in which the collection is presented is connected to a modern structure designed by the architect Sol Madridejos.

Valor Chocolate Museum in Villajoyosa

The Valor Chocolate Museum was created in 1998. In 2008, it was recognised by the Generalitat Valenciana as the Valencia Chocolate Museum.

 

Originally it was a small, family-run factory, which allowed customers to learn about the chocolate-making process and the entire family history of Chocolates Valor -- from its earliest days to the present day, passing through the 5 generations of master chocolatiers who have managed it.

 

In addition, the museum is famous for having one of the best collections of machinery in the chocolate industry from different periods - from the days of grinding cocoa with stones, up to the present day.
