Originally the Archaeological museum of Manacor, it has changed its philosophy over the years due to the variety of its collections. The museum is now a true historical museum and showcases many different periods throughout the areas history.
Dating back to 1908, the actual building where the museum sits in dates back, in fact, to the 13th century and is a historical monument within itself. It is organised around a central courtyard and it showcases styles from different periods, including the older Gothic tower.
The museum was founded by a priest who found the early Christian basilica and the complex of Son Peretó, which he donated to the town of Manacor. It now showcases archaeological objects, agricultural machinery, farm tools, ancient chests of drawers, an early 20th-century printing press, coins from the Roman era up to our days...
