Museu Arqueològic de Son Fornés

Museum in Montuïri

Housed in an 18th-century mill on the northwest edge of town, this enthusiastic, well-curated little museum explores the prehistoric talayotic civilisation of Mallorca. Many exhibits are from the nearby Son Fornés talayot (watchtower), inhabited from around 900 BC to the 4th century AD. One of Mallorca's most important, the talayot is easy enough to visit: head 2.5km northwest out of Montuïri on the Ma3200 towards Pina and you'll see it to the right (east) of the road.

Three-hour guided tours of the museum, talayot and mill can be booked by calling ahead; prices depend on group numbers.
