How good could a small museum in a small city be? Pretty darn good! We went just because we had nothing to do (and it was free) - and were hooked by the great exhibits here, including archaeological relics, old and new paintings, a puppet...More

This is just about the right size for a couple hours indoors from the rain. Good collection of pieces. Well worth the 1.5 Euro admission.

On a wet Sunday this was open and for that we, and many other visitors, were grateful. If you like archaeological artefacts then visit. I was disappointed because it has both art and archaeology in a rather unhappy mix. A lot of the labels are...More

I really enjoyed the Phoenicians section of the museum. I haven't seen many artefacts left from their culture and therefore wanted to visit it mainly for this. There is also a well-populated section about the Roman times and a big statue of Trajan. The entrance...More

This museum showcased two Phonecian sarcophagus that were discovered within the last fifty years. There were displays of beautiful gold jewellery as well. An interesting idea was contemporary art was interdispursed with the various exhibits. I thought that was a fun idea. There were two...More

Beautiful artefacts and displays reflecting the rich and varied history of the town of Cadiz. One of the best museums I have ever visited.

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
