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.

This museum has an amazing archeological collection, especially ancient artefacts and jewellery, but so much more. The upper floors are dedicated to paintings, more recent on this occasion than the archeological floor. Allow 2-3 hours to take everything in or go on two different days....More

As far as I can recall there are steps up to the entrance of the building, I don't think that there was a ramp, on entering the building there was a small entrance area with more steps, I don't recall seeing a lift either... More
