Really enjoyed what we saw. Disappointed told video/film was not possible to watch. Information lady advised times taken to visit each site, original and reconstructed. Also emphasised they were closing at 2pm! We felt rushed and could have taken more time. Went back to the inside display at the end of our visit to view again

It was a trip in time and place. The real life and settings of our ancestors. You visit te real ruins and a recreation of their life. Really interesting.

If you are interested in prehistoric settlements and archeology it is a place to visit. The museum - although very small - is very good and gives an excellent insight in times long gone. Don't expect huge great buildings, but there are a lot of dolmen, low walls and a lot of landscape

This may not be of much interest to people who have no interest in archeology, as it is mostly low walls (the ruin of an ancient fort). Be sure to watch the movie in the visitor center first, as it gives a good explanation of what you will be seeing, and puts the importance of the site into its historical... More

Well-laid out displays, clear and thorough explanation of who were the settlers at Los Millares and how they lived. Lots of pottery examples, stone tools, metal tools, trade items to show everyday life and work, how it evolved and the progression from early time, through primitive industrialisation and trade and on to its decline. The exhibits were enhanced by video... More

We parked up at the small but really good museum. The staff were really friendly and gave us all the info. We set off in the blazing sunshine and visited the... More

The museum contains findings from the Roman and pre-Roman site of Los Millares, which is about 10 miles north of the city and well-worth a visit as well. Entrance to the museum is free for EU citizens and the artifacts are well-displayed on three floors, with signage in Spanish and English. The centrepiece is a huge mock-up of a cross-section...

Los Millares is hard to find and little known by tourist authorities in Andalucia. It is archeological remains of a fortified cupper mining city from pre-celtic times, the place had some 1000 inhabitants and it was related to El Romeral in Antequera and to Baza. Very nice open air museum.

The arqueological site consists of a number of fortifications (redoutes) and a main stronghold, civil buildings, walls, tholos graves and covers chronologically the span from 3 500 to 2 250 BC. From this age the site is singular. Well presented both on the... More
