What a charming musuem and free for EU citizens too! I was not sure what to expect but found it was full of remarkable roman and phoenician pieces and statues but would say that some of them were the best I had ever seen. The glass and pottery was by and large exceptional the statues were beautiful if not so... More

as always i find the museums full of interest although they are quite big you can at least pick out what is liked by you. The entry fees are minimum but this little gem has an upstairs although when we were there one section was cosed but it was very interesting worth the visit

We were only interested in the early history of the citiy so we didn't look at the art collection. The two sarcophagi are obviously the crown jewels of the collection but we were also impressed by the amazing quality of the jewellery. The rooms were well organised and spacious, with plenty of information to read. An hour and a half... More

Go here if you have heard that Cadiz is the oldest city in Europe (and care), whether you believe it or not. If you are a specialist in ancient history you may be surprised at the labels on some of the artifacts. The Roman crystal collection is the best in the world.

Definitely, a worthwhile visit! The museum is located in Plaza Mina, Cadiz (Old Town). It will give you a sense of the history of Cadiz. When my husband and I went, it was on a Tuesday. Admission to the museum was free. The entrance fee usually is 1.50 euros. Definitely, worth your time to check out the interesting collection of... More

The museum has 3 floors - 1st is archaeology/history, 2nd fine art, 3rd contemporary art. If you want to do all 3 allow your self plenty of time, or plan more than 1 visit. We went a couple of hours before closing and only did the 1st floor, and even so we had to rush a little at the end.... More

We were very fortunate to visit Cadiz on International Tourist day. Tourist center ladies offered us a free walking tour of Cadiz which included recently discovered Roman Ampitheater, 1st century fish farm, still being excavated underneath the modern city and the Museum of Cadiz with the ancient artifacts of world class displays. Ancient finds are still being discovered and added... More

We spent a couple of hours looking round this lovely building and enjoyed the wide variety of things on display. My favourite paintings were on the top floor but they really have so much to take in. I have difficulty walking too far and was happy to see they had a lift.

We really liked the archeology department and the contemporary art floor. This is free if you are an EU citizen (go soon UK people) and a nominal fee for non EU citizens.

It's free, so it's worth a look. All of the labelling is in Spanish do you'll struggle if your language skills aren't up to it. Basic Spanish will do. To be honest the Phoenician, Roman etc section has nothing remarkable. Go upstairs for the art. Unfortunately religious art does nothing got me do the pride of place Rubens was wasted... More
