Ciudad Real Museum

This museum displays the archaeological and palaeontological wealth of the surrounding area. It is divided into two sections:

Palaeontology: This section contains a collection composed of fossil remains from different archaeological sites in the province. It includes staged scenes that help visitors understand the surrounding environment in which these species developed. The upper floor contains the museum’s main attraction, Anancus arvernensis (a mastodon), and the fragments of Stephanorthinus etruscus (a rhinoceros).

Archaeology: This section contains materials from different archaeological excavations carried out in the province of Ciudad Real.
