Visit the regional museum and learn the interesting story of Artà
Arta’s Regional Museum, is located close to the Town Hall, in Estrella street. The entity was founded by a group of local scholars with the aim to preserve Arta’s heritage in 1927. During the 60s, the building hosting the museum was purchased and restored by the Mallorcan bank Sa Nostra. The museum is organized in two sections: one committed to Natural History and the other to Archaeology.
You will discover stuffed local birds, as well as the extensive archaeological artefacts of the village. This rich collection is due to particular donations and the hard work of the museum’s researchers. It’s worth highlighting the impressive collection of local fauna, donated by pharmacist Llorenç Garcías Font.
