The Archaeological Museum of Alicante (Spanish: Museo Arqueológico Provincial de Alicante, Valencian: Museu Arqueològic Provincial d'Alacant, abbreviated as MARQ) is an archaeological museum in Alicante, Spain. The museum won the European Museum of the Year Award in 2004,[1] a few years after significant expansion and reallocation to renovated buildings of the antique hospital of San Juan de Dios. The museum houses eight galleries that use multimedia to allow visitors to interact with the lives of past residents of the region.[2]
