A must see. Besides the pieces, it helps you understand the Roman history of Merida. The open and Roman-style of the museum is interesting. Don't forget to check out the Roman road and ruins below the museum. Free Sunday mornings till 3pm!

This museum is a must go for any visitor in Mérida. It is highly recommendable to attend on Sundays, taking advantage of the free visit. Anyway, it is really inexpensive

In an excellent and beautiful building houses a great collection of Roman masterpieces which add up to the Theater and Amphitheater across the street magnificently. Why not invest in proper and sufficient airconditioning in an area so hot as the Extremadura and in an audiotour...More
