The main building of Terres de l’Ebre Museum in Amposta has two exhibition rooms: “The Terres de l’Ebre: from Prehistory to the Middle Ages” and “The Ebro: a Water Highway”. Through a fascinating scenography, visitors can learn about the different cultures that have made the Terres de l’Ebre their home throughout history. You can also see how this great Iberian river has shaped the landscape and the lives of its people with its great natural wealth, diverse ways of life and the strategic situation on the river banks.
The museum has important nature, archaeology and ethnology collections with more than 35,000 objects that represent the memory of the territory in the form of material and immaterial assets. In keeping with its nature as a museum of the territory and its society, it takes an interest in the management of the region’s natural and cultural heritage and organises activities aimed at highlighting and disseminating the values of that heritage as part of a local development strategy.

From there just follow the signposts into town to Avinguda de Catalunya and the museum. Coming from the south, in the direction of Tarragona/Barcelona, take the first exit to Amposta-Tortosa that links to the C-12 road and takes you into the town of Amposta.

C-12: If you are coming from the interior and the River Ebro counties, it is best not to take the first Amposta exit, but to continue until you come to a second roundabout with a vertical metal sculpture.
