In the first floor we find four rooms distributed as follows: Room 1: dedicated to Prehistory. Room 2: Colonization, especially the reference to the Iberian settlement of the Grandchildren. Room 3: Romanization, where it especially unleashes epigraphy with its funeral and religious inscriptions, ceramics and sculpture, building materials, the city and its monuments and industry. Room 4: the Lower Empire and Medieval times are collected. On the second floor: Room 5: mono graphic mining. Room 6: the most important sites of the city are collected. Room 7: dedicated to various audiovisuals. Room 8: gathers the Modern Age. The Museum is built on a late Roman necropolis, the one of San Antón, of interest as much by its graves as by its chronology.
