ARQUA, Marine Archaeology Museum
It’s fitting that this institution should be set in one of the western Mediterranean’s great ancient harbours, where new finds are made almost every year. ARQUA is a national centre for marine archaeology; a place to see remarkable historical artefacts from underwater sites, but also a research facility for archaeology experts and scholars. You can find out how archaeologists analyse their discoveries in the laboratory area, which has interactive displays for kids. Among the many artefacts are Carthaginian ivory tusks and the treasure of Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes, a frigate that was sunk in the early 19th century with 14.5 tons of gold and silver coins.
