San Roque Museum opens at last

Visitors yesterday
SAN ROQUE (Agencies) The President of the Junta de Andalucía, José Antonio Griñán, was the guest of honour at yesterday's opening of the San Roque Museum, an accomplishemnt after five years under renovation. After cutting the traditional ribbon, Griñán was given a guided tour of the two-story building on Calle San Felipe that houses a considerable collection of artifacts dating back to the earliest , prehistorical, settlers in the area. It also offers audio-visual items as well as, naturally archaeological pieces. A series of open-door workshops is planned for the near future and the museum is open every day except Monday, during the usual hours (including, no doubt, a long lunchtime break), but on weekends will be open only in the morning.
