  • Only by visiting the sarcophagi Phoenicians, unique in the world visit is worthwhile. Everything else is also of interest.

  • The pieces stars of this museum are 2 Phoenician sarcophagi, which, together with the statue of the Roman Emperor Trajan, make the visit a success. They have rooms dedicated to the Phoenician, Roman and Islamic era, all parts are areas of the province of Cadiz. They also exhibited a collection of paintings by different artists, which include Zurbarán and Murillo. I recommend visiting the Museum just to see the coffin.

  • We visited the Museum my family in full. From the ground floor upwards is a journey through the history of Cadiz. Prehistory, Phoenicians, Romans, with many finds: funerary offerings, urns, mosaics, jewelry pieces... A very valuable collection of pictures, with paintings by Zurbarán, Ribera... Very educational for children or teens to teach features of each style.

  • Another great Andalusian museum, well worth a visit. Archaeological finds include Phoenician, Roman and Islamic artefacts, which are all well displayed.
  • 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.
