Andalucía’s most important archaeological collection, housed in a pavilion in Maria Luisa Park, charts everything from the Neolithic age, through the Roman occupation to the time of the Moors. The stand-outs are a statuette of Astarte-Tanit, a Phoenician fertility goddess who held the Mediterranean in thrall around the 8th-century BC, and the Carambolo Treasures, a stunning hoard of gold jewelry from the 6th century which shows clear Oriental influence--and may leave you musing about the people who lived in Andalucía 1500 years ago. Closed on Mondays.

We spent about an hour here just wandering through the rooms. It's free for EU citizens and has some really gorgeous displays. Not over-crowded and packed full like other museums.

We visited the museum one day during our four day visit to Seville. We found the exhibitions to be first class and the extent of it is quite astounding. We really enjoyed the fact that the summaries are also in English as well as Spanish. There is an audio tour available. Worth a visit for sure.

Located in the Parque de Maria Luisa in a building designed by Anibal Gonzalez for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, the museum has two floors of exhibits; the lower ground floor and the ground floor. Most of the Roman antiquities are from the nearby Roman town of Italica. Fascinating. Free to EU citizens and a modest charge of 1.50 euros... More

This is a very comprehensive museum that was well worth the visit. It covers all of the time periods in the Seville area and is worth at least an hour of your time.

The core of the museum is the Roman artefacts, which mainly come from the Roman city of Italica, about 6Km north of Savilla. The basement covers the areas pre-Roman history, while the top 2 floors are dedicated to the Roman era. Some amazing mosaics and statues. Each room has a brief explanation in English, but details of the exhibits are... More

First I should mention that we missed out on viewing the Treasury that is apparently tucked away on an upper floor during renovations. Yet what we saw ,the prehistoric and Roman era sections were fascinating,well lit,labeled and showcased. The building itself is grand,dating from the 1929 Universal Exhibition. Many of the artifacts shown come from the Italica site near Sevilla.... More

Housed in one of the old "pavillions" this was a great add in in this section of the park. In fact there is another museum opposite. OK so "old stuff" might not be for you but its free to UK citizens to visit and also a chance to grab some welcome shade. The exhibits are thoughtfully laid out and are... More

This museum splits the Plaza de Americas with another museum. You can easily do both in a couple of hours. The fee is minimal and the plaza is a nice place to visit anyway. I believe the fee was only 1.50 which reflects the size and significance of the collection. It gave me a chance to get out of the... More
