For the first time Nerja Museum will be hosting events during the annual Andalucian Science Week, along with the Nerja Caves. There are a total of three different events (in Spanish) on offer during the science week in the Caves and Museum (see below).

‘Estalactitas, estalagmitas y otros espeleotemas en la Cueva de Nerja’ – ‘Stalactites, stalagmites and other speleothems in the Nerja Caves’

7th and 14th November 2012

A guided tour through the Nerja Caves, exploring the many varied geological formations which are in the caves, including stalactites, stalagmites and cave pearls. The tour will last from 10am to 1pm.

‘Conoce el mundo subterráneo: la Cueva de Nerja y su Museo’ – ‘Meet the underworld: The Nerja Caves and Museum’

12th and 13th November 2012

A look behind the scenes at the Nerja Caves and Museum, to see things like the weather station, library and other scientific facilities, not normally seen by the public and a guided tour of the Nerja Museum and its exhibits. From 10am to 2pm including a 15 minute break.

‘¿Sabes hacer una cueva?’ – ‘Can You Make A Cave?’

8th and 15th November 2012

In the caves there is much to see: stalactites and stalagmites, bats, water droplets … If we are attentive, we see even more: rock art, macaroni and even, with a little luck, animals that live only in caves and never go out. Participants will take part in activities to learn more about the caves including how they were formed. 10am to 2pm with a 30 minute break. Optional visit to the caves 45 minutes.
