Museum of Menorca

The Museum of Menorca is based in the old 15th century Franciscan monastery of Jesus, although the building you see today dates from the 17th and 18th centuries.

The museum ‘Museu de Menorca’ is the most important museum of the island.

The present museum collection is made up of pieces from the previous museum and has been expanded to include finds from recent archaeological excavations as well as private donations.

This collection, of over 200,000 artefacts, traces the island’s history from prehistoric times all the way up to the present.

Temporary exhibitions are held on the ground floor.

The ‘Museu de Menorca’ is a reference point, promoting Menorca’s culture and heritage and supporting important research focussed on the island prehistory.
