We spent about two hours visiting the exhibition and grounds. What a special place with so much history. Beautifully preserved and presented. Highly recommended for a relatively cheap entry fee.

The remains of the ancient citadel of Roses is just across the main street from the beach front and makes for an excellent couple of hours visit. A fascinating piece of history.

The museum is very interesting and informative, We didn't have a chance to go outside as it was very very windy the day we went. The best thing is it is free for over 65s
