MARQ is an archaeological museum that is committed to showing its collection in a conventional manner, specifically, as a collection of findings that have been arranged according to their categories. The mission of the MARQ project is to create the first archaeological museum of the 21st century. This presents a significant challenge.

The Archaeology Museum of Alicante is a prestigious establishment that also serves as a significant educational space, and it offers you an experience that is both remarkable and entertaining.

Visitors to the museum are given the opportunity to learn about the several approaches and procedures that are linked with archaeology. Field Archaeology, Urban Archaeology, and Underwater Archaeology each have their own gallery where these topics are discussed in detail.
