Jaen City - Museums

There are several museums worth visiting in Jaen. Like most Andalucian towns and cities there is a museum dedicated exclusively to local history, customs and artesan work. In Spanish it’s called the “Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares”.

The Provincial Museum in Jaen will be high on the list of anyone interested in archeology as it houses items of interest that have been discovered in the province. This museum provides an excellent opportunity to trace history right back to its Iberian origins.

If art museums are what attract you, then visit the International Museum of Art Naif. The word Naif comes from the French for naive with works in this category coming from the early 20th century.

Other museums, such as the the Virgen del Capillo and the Catedralicio museums might not have as wide and popular appeal as the aforementioned centres, but could be on the agenda if you are planning an extended stay.

On the horizon, locals are looking forward to an emblematic new International Art Museum. A contemporary building is hoped to put the new facilities on the map.
