“The Arxeriz Ecomuseum belongs to the Museums Net of Galicia as Visitable Collection.”
The Ecomuseum of Arxeriz belongs to the Museums Net of Galicia since 28th November 2008, as "Visitable Collection".
The museum experience begins its path in 2004 with the idea of protecting, rescuing, defending, restoring, exhibiting, studying, investigating, and spreading the ethnographic, historic and artistic heritage of Ribeira Sacra. The project starts in a modest way with two galleries and the idea to growing and making museum.
The idea, from the beginning, was and is integrate and combine the explanatory spaces of the rooms, indoors, with the surroundings, the gardens, the complementary buildings, the vegetable garden, the iron age settlement and the forest; with the intention to alternate the indoors visit with the outdoors walking. The name of Ecomuseum appears from ethnography, history and nature combination that we have in Arxeriz.
