  • The visit is free. It has three sections, but the most interesting is that of archaeology, on the floor below, very useful to know the rich past of the city. Is also located in a very nice place and in an interesting building in itself,

  • Great attention has been received, have already had the pleasure of receiving a free guided tour twice. To book a guided tour free must call the Museum one or two days before. The Museum consists of a section of art and another of archaeology. The guide with Cadiz art makes very enjoyable visit explaining the story with some curious anecdotes. It is worth, spend a couple of hours to learn the history of Cadiz

  • 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.
