  • This is a collection of prehistoric and ancient objects and artifacts. In the basement are the ruins of the ancient theater. I liked the simplicity and clarity of exposition Tour took us about an hour. EU citizens are admitted free.

  • Little Museum with interesting archaeological remains for a quiet tour of not more than half an hour, has a very pleasant and attentive staff, there are no queues or agglomerations and admission is free.

  • Good explanations and well laid out -- two reasons to go to this museum, couple this with the amphitheater under it and a good coffee in the quiet leafy piaza after, and you can see why you should do ...  more »

  • Really interesting. It's built on the ruins of the roman theatre so you get to go underneath to see them. Also an interesting history of the city.
  • Nice small museum, beautifully packaged. Really interesting. English explanations, too. Free entrance for EU citizens (for Brits, too, still?). Arabic period of Córdoba does not get a lot of attention, it seemed to me.
  • They've built a museum over a Roman theater...and I like to see all things Roman. Aside from the exposed ruins of the theater, the rest of the museum has artifacts of ancient Cordoba including after the Romans left.
  • Roman era history in Córdoba
  • Impresionantemente bonito
