  • Spread over three floors, this museum to get an extensive insight into the early history of the city and can admire contemporary art, as well as Renaissance painting. The exhibition on the early and late history is very comprehensive, the collection of paintings, in particular as regards the contemporary, extensive might. As an EU citizen, the admission is free.

  • Extremely good. 3 floors . 90 minutes. Some very contemporary art and outstanding Phoenician archeological exhibits.
  • Specifically the archeological part of the museum is great. They also have paintings by Rubens and Murillo that are nice to see.
  • Interesting museum, free for the EU citizens, rich of artifacts, especially from the prehistoric and ancient Cadiz. Quite lacking in the colonial and Napoleonic era.
  • If you like the archaeology (sarcophagi Phoenician, mosaics Roman), the history ancient and the art (much Zurbaran, Murillo, Rubens, looked, Sorolla,...) not you it can lose.

  • A museum that you moved from the Neolithic to the modern era with grace and intelligence. It gave me knowledge and peace. Thanks to friendly caretakers of art in the rooms for their friendly welcome and to all those who made possible this wonder.
