A reference in Museography that gives preference to the context of the pieces on display through a precise balance between audiovisuals and the collection.

The museum is constructed along two parallel presentations that complement each other. On one side, the rooms display the pieces and their context chronologically, which helps to understand the evolution of the objects and the civilizations. On the other side are situated the scenographies that transmit the visitor to the work sites which describe an archeological study by the different means available.
