  • The building has been finally completed almost 35 years after it was first announced

The Antequera Dolmen Museum will open its doors at the end of 2021 with two temporary exhibitions.

However, its permanent collection will not be inaugurated until 2022 after almost 35 years of projects, planning and promises.

The announcement was made by the regional government’s Elías Bendodo and Patricia del Pozo, who have visited the works.

The plan is to bring back some of the artefacts found in recent times that did not stay in Antequera due to lack of space.

Referring to the years of delays Bendodo said, “I was 10 years old when we were promised this museum. Therefore, today is magnificent news after 4.5 million euros of investment."
