  • Not far from the cathedral beyond the Domeq bodegas you'll find a square with small statues of Cervantes and Shakespeare. Behind this is the museum. Entrance for eu citizens is very cheap. Less than 2€. The building is air conditioned, has 3 floors of exhibits. Included is an audio tour. The in-room videos play in Spanish or English. We spent over 2 hours here. A hidden gem. There's also a small collections of coins through the ages. It's a good place to start your visit to Jerez as it describes how it is laid out, the Alcázar, the walls and churches. During an extension to the museum they found more archeology. A small area of the dig is on view.
  • Very nice exibits and good information
  • Small in size but big on historical contribution, Museum has an extensive set of pieces dating from the Paleolithic until the 17TH century, convenient to visit Museum and indispensable to see if you want to know Jerez and its historical background.
