Museum of Mallorca
The Museum of Mallorca (Museu de Mallorca) certainly seems like a good place to start your exploration of the island’s history. The relatively small museum itself occupies a beautiful 17th-century palace built on the foundations of one of the city’s oldest Moorish houses, and nestled in the middle of Palma Old Town. Exhibits go right back to the island’s first civilisations, with Talaiotic and Roman remains, followed by Moorish and Christian art, all complemented by a fine collection of artworks. While the history elements can be a little on the dry side (with limited English translations), just exploring the building itself is worth the modest entry fee.
