Clear signage and vivid exhibits make this one of the country’s most rewarding archaeological museums. Its coverage includes natural history as well as human occupation. While storks seem to be the most common form of wildlife these days, the beasts were considerably more ferocious some 780,000 years ago, judging by the bones of saber-toothed tigers, ur-wolves, and rhinoceros on display. Don’t miss the wonderful murals recovered from Alcalá’s Roman era when it was known as Complutum, founded 1 b.c.
