The building that houses the museum is worth visiting in its own right. The exhibits depicting the history of Galicia and all encompassing and very educational. more »
Nice museum but lacking in some aspects. It's mostly focused on modern Galicians and there is nothing about the history of the people throughout time.
If you don’t know Galician, the building is the main attraction. The triple spiral staircase leading to 3 different levels is beautiful and mind boggling. The Building is beautiful. The displays show old Galician life and trades but unfortunately nothing is in English or Spanish.
