Archaeological Museum of Alicante (MARQ)

An interactive museum.

Have you ever thought you would like to be Indiana Jones? The Museo Arqueológico de Alicante (MARQ), on Plaza del Doctor Gómez Ulla, will show you that this is a thrilling profession which allows you to make historical discoveries. Following an etnographic journey from the 5th century BC to the present, the MARQ is an outstanding museum, not just for the artifacts exhibited, but also for its interactive approach to archaeology. The Sala de Arqueología de Campo (Field Archaeology Room), Arqueología Urbana (Urban Archaeology) and Arqueología Subacuática (Underwater Archaeology) reflect the current work in the local sites, where they keep finding traces from the past. For the younger ones, MARQ organises workshops, dramatised visits -Roman re-enactment included- and night excursions to the Parque Arqueológico Lucentum, an archaeological site at the Tossal de Manises, in the Albufereta area, declared an Historical-Artistic Monument since 1961.
