Museo de Villajoyosa
Museum was established in 1975 by a group of local fans, with José Payá
Nicolau at the head. Since then, numerous
pieces have been collected from local archaeological and ethnographic sources.
In 1995 he was recognized as Permanent museum collection and 6 September 1996 as the Museum by the Ministry of Culture, Education and Science.
The Museum of Archeology section has been greatly enriched as a result of excavations in the town, especially as regards funds of Iberian and Roman eras (necropolis of Poble Nou and Cassettes, Roman villa Plans, etc.). and Islamic (farmsteads, mosque and cemetery l'Almiserá).
Villajoyosa Museum contains one of the most significant archaeological collections of Valencia and is a dynamic institution developing a broad conservation effort, research and outreach, with a determined bid for the educational activities and access to heritage.
