There are a few museums in Orihuela and they hold a great variety of exhibitions, both permanent and temporary that complement the culture on offer for our residents and the visitors that arrive every day.

One of the things you can do on your holiday is visit the museums in Orihuela.
The museums in Orihuela are a combination of monuments and culture.


Our city, thanks to its historical importance has not only historical monuments and palatial buildings to visit, see, and photograph, but also museums that are historical monuments and places of interest due to their culture and history.

Many of the main monuments in the city have been made, for the pleasure of the tourists, into historical remains that are both dynamic and active.

That is to say monuments that open to cultural tourism, monuments that in their interior exhibit paintings and sculptures, photography and books.

But we also have historical monuments that are part of the town?s daily life, like the building that houses the town hall, the building of the Caja Rural Central (a building society) or the many palaces where some of the lucky residents of our town live. Culture lives on.

This use of the historical buildings and monuments by the residents means that a great part of our heritage has been enriched, discovered and even revitalized and restored, so it can be well used.

An example of this is the Rubalcava Palace that is presently being restored with the aim to convert it into a boutique hotel, respecting our heritage and at the same time increasing the hotel beds on offer in our town.

Despite the crisis, the amount of art museums in Orihuela has grown, including the opening just a month ago of the Ermita del Santo Sepulcro, a hermitage that has been restored with the aim of making it into a museum.

We must highlight the hard work of the Concejalia de Cultura (city council) that has a detailed calendar for each of the museums, a diary with all the interesting details so as to keep both residents and visitors up to date with the exhibitions that are on in the area, the location, type of exhibition and timetables, being the mainstay of all the tourist information related to the art museums as well as the other museums in our town.

This information from the city council is very important and interesting, and is not just about the museums in our town, but also the museums in the surrounding area and Orihuela coast.

And on top of that every month they provide a day by day program of the two fundamental cultural buildings in Orihuela, the Circo Theatre and the La Lonja auditorium.

It is quite common to find in Banks and other cultural related buildings, the program published in a little booklet for the Teatro Principal de Alicante, printed every 6 months so as to give time for advance bookings.

You can visit museums in Orihuela according to their timetables, that in most cases are the same, apart from some like the Arte Sacro Museum, the Cathedral or the Colegio de Santo Domingo that are directed by the diocese, but these do try to adapt to the timetables of the museums that are run by the town hall.

Finally, just to mention that all the museums have a reception, the people at reception often, when asked, can be a type of guide at the same time, like in the case of the Colegio Santo Domingo, the Miguel Hernandez house museum, the Santiago Church, the San Juan de Dios museum, the archaeological museum, the Muralla museum?
