What is a museum?
According to the RAE, a museum is a place to store collections of art objects, scientific or the other type, and in general with cultural value. The objects are conveniently placed to be considered. It is an institution, non-profit, open to the public, whose purpose is the acquisition, conservation, study and exhibition of objects that best illustrate the man activities, or culturally important to the development of human knowledge.
In Cáceres there are numerous museums that by their tradition and importance must be seen:
