This is very imposing and impressive with lots of light and space. Although it has lots of large statues and sculptures I found the small personal items even more interesting.

It is a nice museum. You can see mosaics and sculptures very well preserved. The workers are very helpful and can help to understand the collections. Don't forget to go to the basement to visit the ruins.

This is a museum that worth a visit because of its big statues and enormous mosaics! It is very well presented and preserved. I recommend you to visit the museum at the end of your stay in Merida.

History comes to life. A very large and extensive collection of Roman and paleo-christian remains of Augusta Emerita - the ancient capital of Lusitania, a Roman province. A must!

Possibly the best museum linked to the romans I have been to. Exhibits were great and the building stunning.

The massive brick building is Auster, but at the same time almost cathedral like. The content of the museum speaks to the wealth and importance of the city at Roman times, Free of charge at least on Sundays.

Very nicely displayed museum, don't miss the basement. You can see the old Roman road as well. The Roman coin display is magnificent.
