  • Lovely building. Free entry. Plenty of interesting exhibits.
  • This is a great, local museum. What is even more impressive is that it is free, at least for EU citizens! The biggest highlight is of course the sarcophagus from the Phoenicians, inmacutely preserved and displayed. The one from the lady even had some decorative bronze eye lashes! The paintings are also interesting, and although there are no world-knowns masterpieces there are plenty of Murillo's and Zurbaran's
  • Good section on early history of Cadiz. Modern art on upper floors.
  • Nice exhibits. Some more English explanations would help, but every language could say that.
  • Extremely good. 3 floors . 90 minutes. Some very contemporary art and outstanding Phoenician archeological exhibits.
