Photographs; some from the Museum’s photographic archive; others from Díaz Burgos, José Albaladejo and José Gabriel Gómez the evolution of the Museum after its inauguration.
Future projects and the current state of knowledge of the post scaenam porticus. This space is located at the back of the scenic building. One future project is to undertake the archaeological excavations of this space and its enhancement.
