Worth a couple of hours wandering through the this museum to gain an understanding of the history of Asturia. Artefacts from many centuries ago until 1950s and 1960s are on display. It is near the local football stadium which is also worth a look.

We visited this two years ago during our last visit to Gijon. Then, we'd been soaked to the skin by the endless heavy rain and hadn't really enjoyed the outside sights as much as we wanted. This time, the weather was better and so we were able to look at all the various examples of traditional buildings without being soaked.... More

Excellent museum but spoiled for foreign visitors by an almost total lack of translation into any other language. If you can speak and, more importantly read Spanish, then it is fascinating. Spent a whole morning there and could have been there longer.

We were the only people in the museum when we went. . They had to put the lights on for us as the place was in darkness we thought it was shut! Once inside we were directed to the top floor to see the aging process and history of the region. But the best bits we thought were outside. The... More

Whether you are a tourist or a resident of Asturias you should visit this museum. It has a fantastic collection of objects that reflect the day to day life of the people of Asturias, including the gaita, a cider press,(of course) farming and household implements and a really impressive collection of 3D black and white photos from the late 1800s,...

At first I thought that only someone interested in antiques would like this much... but then I went out to the little buildings and just loved the musical instruments. There were all kind of instruments, but I particularly liked the la gaita, or bag pipes, from around the world. As you look at the different artifacts from about 150 years... More

We went to Gijon during Easter and the weather wasn't too good so noticed there was a cider festival being held at this museum so decided to check it out. I'm not sure how the museum is on a normal weekend but we got lucky and it was 5euors in with all you could drink cider, over 80 different varieties... More

We visited this during our trip during November. It's a reasonable walk out from the main area of town, close to the football stadium and you can walk along the river, which can be a pleasant walk. However, when we went there, it was raining very heavily and so, it wasn't the best day to visit an open air museum.... More

Great museum covering all sorts of Asturian cultural practices (there's a sidra house, for example). If you head out into the countryside wondering what on Earth all those weird stilted wooden huts are, you only have yourself to blame for not visiting this informative museum!
