Overview

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.

Brilliant for a small museum that covers lots of periods of history with mosaics, statues and various other artifacts. Suitable for English speaking / reading visitors as well as Spanish as all signs appear in dual language. A nice selection of items displayed in a...More

This excellent museum reflects the presence and influence of the succession of invaders to Spain. Commencing with the Phoenicians, individual rooms are allocated to the Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Moors and Visigoths. The wealth of artefacts is outstanding. The museum is set in attractive gardens that...More

This museum is free to EU citizens, and has some great mosaics (mostly taken from Italica) and a lot of sculpture of heads without bodies and bodies without heads! But it is quiet, cool and easy to get round in 30 mins. It is opposite...More

Yes, I love archeological museums - this one is a beauty and obviously not very well known. There were hardly any visitors when I went through. Brilliant Roman mosaics, frescoes, busts and statues. A particularly outstanding Mercury with winged feet, a gorgeous Venus and a...More

At the far-end of the Parque Maria Luisa, this doesn't seem to get many tourists, but is well-worth a visit - especially as it's free to EU residents and air-conditioned on hot days! The collection is split on three floors, linked by a lift, with...More

This is a good museum, for those interested in the pre-history and history of the area. T he museum flows well, but for those with little knowledge there are few English captions. It's free and a good place to get out of the sun on...More

Although production of your passport will get you in without charge, there is only a limited amount of English Language labelling. The rooms are described in English but the individual artifacts are not. If you only have a passing interest in archaeology and limited Spanish...More

If you are archeology lovers, you are welcome here. A large number of exhibits, and the building itself is very beautiful. Especially not different from other museums on this subject, there is everything from primitive excavation to crockery, yes beads, to antique statues. We were...More

I couldn't absolutely believe we were the only visitors! And it was free, that day! It's filled with beautiful Roman masterpieces rescued by the nearby Roman city Italica and all the rooms are beautifully organized. If you love Roman art, DO NOT miss it!
