Located in Santa Eulalia, this museum aims to preserve the typical elements of the island’s rural life. It’s hosted in a traditional Casa Payesa, named Can Ros.

Apart from the structure of the house, the visitors can check out utensils, farming equipment, typical dresses as well as jewellery and musical instruments of the past.
This museum is hosted in one of the oldest houses in Dalt Vila, Casa de La Cúria. The house was built around the old Andalusian wall and shows, by using modern audio-visual technology, Ibiza town when it was a medieval Muslim town called Madina Yabisa, an important Muslim city during the Middle Ages.
