  • The Museum consists of two parts, that of archaeology which shows us pieces of ceramics, sculptures, jewelry, funerary offerings, tombs and all kinds of frames that reflect the more than 3000 years old of this city. It should be noted the two anthropomorphic Phoenician sarcophagi, one woman and one man. The other is that of painting, where you have to note the murillo paintings that were in the Church of Capuchins and many pictures of costumbrista painting.

  • The Phoenician sarcophagi, some Roman pieces... in another order of things, several zurbaranes, in a 'very Cadiz' enclave as it is the square of the mine. Free... and very good experience.

  • 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.
