Carlos Soriano Ethnographic Museum (Molina de Segura - Murcia)

Carlos Soriano Ethnographic Museum (Molina de Segura)

This centre houses all kinds of archaeological finds in the municipality, as well as samples of history through the exhibition of traditional costumes, furniture, machinery, and miniature replicas of tools used in the garden.

Inaugurated in 2003, it is located in what was formerly the home of the lawyer Carlos Soriano—a property whose landscape has an incomparable beauty and where part of its original facilities, such as the kitchen, the water jar, and the bedroom, are still preserved.

Its architecture corresponds to the traditional bourgeois style of the 19th century. The current museum is arranged in various rooms distributed along its two floors. On the ground floor, we find the spacious hall typical of the constructions of the time, which contains a majestic half-spiral staircase that leads to the upper floor. The dependencies that functioned as a kitchen, “tinajero”, and patio are also housed there. On the upper floor, we can find the master bedroom and the permanent exhibition rooms.

Sometimes the museum organizes temporary exhibitions related to the orchard tradition, but due to the lack of space for it, they are displayed in the hermitage that is attached to the property.
