The Municipal Ethno-Archaeological Museum’s primary purpose is to safeguard and preserve the heritage as a whole. It carries out whatever scientific study is required to understand and establish both its meaning and its possession. In this sense, it helps in the preparation of a global ethic based on practice for the conservation, protection and diffusion of cultural heritage values. A museum’s educational mission, whatever its nature, is every bit as important as its scientific work.
The Municipal Ethno-Archaeological Museum moved into its new headquarter, the José Martín Ruiz municipal building next to the Tourist Office, in May 2004. The new building features two permanent exhibition rooms in which the history and traditions of Fuentes de Andalucía are explained most objectively and comprehensively possible.
