VILLARRUBIA DE LOS OJOS ETHNOGRAPHICAL MUSEUMGPS: 39.21900177001953, -3.61080002784729
The museum, located in the ancient local slaughterhouse, has four rooms where a tour through the history of the local people is offered through the recreation of the economic activities which were developed in this village and the tools they used in them. It is a walk which starts in the Prehistoric period and goes to mid-20thcentury.
The archaeological room (room 1) keeps the tools and decorative objects found in different Prehistoric sites near the village from the Paleolithic, Neolithic, Chalcolithic and Bronze Age (very important in this area), as well as a large variety of objects that belonged to the Iberian period and mainly to the Roman presence.
The rest of the rooms (room 2, 3, and 4) keep a large collection of farming tools, domestic objects, typical work clothes and the first farming machines. Once, those activities were the sustenance and the lifestyle of the local people.
During the year, temporary painting and photography exhibitions take place in addition to journeys and talks. The courtyard of the museum, recently restored, has been –and still is– the scenario of concerts and contests.
Villarrubia de los Ojos Tourist Office is located in the museum dependences.
