Museums


So many and varied artistic demonstrations have existed for millennia and still continue in Extremadura that, necessarily, during the last years the different national, regional and provincial institutions have not doubted to collaborate and develop, each as far as possible, a proper planning guided to the construction or amplification of buildings dedicated to museums that may expose and provide space for a great part of the thousands of artistic and archaeological pieces that Extremadura owns.

Therefore, the Autonomous Region has an interesting list of museums at the moment, where artistic pieces of archaeological origin are exposed; belonging to the diverse historical times: prehistory, Roman, Visigothic, Arabic, etc., found in the region.

No wonder, in these lands of Extremadura, all cultures of interest in the Iberian Peninsula from prehistory until today have been, and even with the greatly special and valuable contribution that, in the artistic-historical aspects, the Discovery of America would mean to Extremadura.

Besides all the above, the museums of this region have also been able to collect a great amount of pictorial, ethnografic and sculptural works, made by artists from the region, the nation or the whole world. And so in their galleries, we can contemplate magnificent and careful collections of objects that exhibit art and the customs popular in Extremadura.
