Various galleries with artefacts from earliest settlement, and an idea of how the city developed (and it is a really interesting 'almost island' ) and then with art of different ages, modern pieces interspersed with more traditional, much from local Carthusian monastery (including the martyred...More

Part archaeological museum, part art museum. The ground floor is dedicated to archaeological artefacts, the 2nd to fine arts and the 3rd to contemporary arts. The archaeology floor covers all the major periods of Cadiz, from Phoenicians, Roman and of course Moorish period. The highlight...More

What a beautiful place to visit. Wonderful exhibition. Good location and free entry. It was quiet, calm and beautifully presented.

This impressive building in the centre of Cadiz is easy to find, on the Plaza de Mina. Check the website for opening times. Entry is free for EU citizens, we weren’t even asked for photo I.D. when we told them that we were British. The...More

We went specifically to see the Phoenician artefacts on the first floor of the museum, but since time allowed, I also checked out the upper floors and found some paintings by /Zuburan, Murillo and Alonso Cano. Well worth your time.

Didn't expect to find such an interesting museum in Cadiz . Originally two separate museums until 1970 - archeology and fine arts - the museum houses a fascinating collection of prehistoric, Phoenician and Roman artefacts on the ground floor and a collection of Baroque and...More

We enjoyed our visit to the Fine Arts & Archaeological Museum, although I must confess we had a guide who trained as an archaeologist. There are some beautiful artefacts on display and the museum seems to be run very professionally by the staff. Would have...More
