The Úbeda Archaeological Museum is located in a 14th century building known as Casa Mudéjar, itself worthy of a visit. The interior courtyard of the house, typical for its time, is a cool, green space that now displays two beautiful lions from Ubeda La Vieja, an ancient settlement about 15 kilometres southeast of Ubeda that was once the Roman town of Salaria.

Much of the rest of the museum is devoted to Roman artefacts from Ubeda la Vieja. One room looks at the prehistory of the area.
