Museo Regional de Prehistoria y Arquelogía - MUPAC

Recommended
Housed beneath the Mercado del Este since 2013, this museum shows remarkably vividly the evolution of culture and ways of life, from the Paleolithic Era to the Middle Ages, through displays based on digs carried out in the 50 or so prehistoric caves in Cantabria. The richest section is the Upper Paleolithic era, with artefacts including animal remains, furniture, tools, ceramics and coinage.
