Great artefacts a little disappointed with the information and no one really to answer any questions you may have. I was lucky I had my son with me to explain a lot to me. Some of the most beautiful Silverware you will see anywhere.

This is a combined ticket with the cathedral but is still worth a visit in its own right. Has a fabulous collection of church silver plus lots of other interesting exhibits.

In order to go into the Cathedral in Medina you are forced to pay to go to this museum which is boring to say the least. There is very little of interest here so it’s best to skip this and just go into the Church.More

The admission price for cathedral and museum is really reasonable with an over 60s concession. Lots to see, with extensive art, especially the Durer collection
