The Museum presents Dénia's evolution from its origins in the Iberian period up to the XVIII century. The centre guards important and interesting elements from the Roman Era, a Mercury in bronze, which dates back to the III century. It also possesses a collection of Islamic bronzes from the XI and XII century.

The building which houses the City’s Archaeology Museum is located in two buildings known as the “Palau del governador” (Governor’s Palace); there are few remains of a Palace complex located inside the upper premises of the Castle. It dates from the 17th century and it has a Renaissance architectural style. Its construction as a scenic viewpoint or gallery formed part of a recreation and rest area attached to the Summer Palace of the Marquises Dénia. Nowadays, it still conserves the stone room and first floor.
