Museum of Navarre
The Museum was founded in 1956, although remodelled and re-inaugurated in 1990. Built in the 16th century, the plateresque façade is the building’s original, as is the chapel’s interior. The rest was remodelled to obtain more space: 7,700 m2 spread over four floors and a basement level.
A visit allows guests to connect with the culture and history of Navarre. The vestibule, organised as a large welcome space; the assembly hall, with room for 180 people; and the terrace, with unparalleled views, offer modern spaces that foster an exchange of knowledge and experience.
On display are Provincial Community findings from the Palaeolithic and Iron Age, artistic offerings from Roman, pre-Romanesque, Romanesque, and Muslim Navarre, examples of Gothic and Renaissance art, Spanish and foreign painting from the 17th and 18th centuries, works from Francisco de Goya, and 19th and 20th century paintings from Navarre.
In terms of the works with greatest artistic interest, a highlight is Goya’s portrait of the Marqués de San Adrián; a ivory Spanish-Muslim chest, Romanesque capitals, and the impressive mosaic that covered the floor of a room in the Roman villa of Ramalote (Tudela), in addition to the archives of the region’s archaeological and medieval treasures.
Tuesday through Saturday: from 9:30am to 2:00pm, and 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
Sunday and public holidays: 11:00am to 2:00pm
