  • On November 23rd and December 4th we went for a guided tour of the Avilés Urban History Museum with two groups each day of 25 pupils from 4th Primary (TOTAL 100 CHILDREN AND 5 TEACHERS). The attention of the reception staff was wonderful and the guided tour of the interior quarters and given by Mr. Manuel Angel Hidalgo very entertaining, entertaining and appropriate to the age of the participants. The facilities provided for the realization of the visit were maximum, both in times, dates and groups. As teachers that we are, we find it very interesting to visit the Museum as a complement to the tour that we make walking through the medieval village and to what was taught and worked in the classroom, within the subject of Asturian Culture. Thank you for being there and for the attentions we have been subjected to.

  • The museum presents a brief retrospective on the history of the city of Avilés, but the most interesting part is the current exhibition on the construction of the High Ovens and the remodeling that suffered the estuary. He sees himself quietly in half an hour.
