Museo Nacional de Arte Romano, Merida

4.6
Marvel at the impressive collection at Museo Nacional de Arte Romano, an art museum that reflects Roman architecture with its archways, columns, and skylights. The statues found here are especially notable, including a marble bust of Augustus Caesar, which is considered one of the best in Europe. Among the paintings are large mosaics hung on the walls. There are also collections of glass works, coins, and more. When you arrive, ask about a guided tour to get more detailed information about the displays. Put Museo Nacional de Arte Romano and other Merida attractions into our Merida trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • I want to recommend José Luis Lara, is official guide of tourism of Extremadura. It does an excellent job, not only as a museum guide, we also did a tour of all the most important monuments of Mérida. I liked your explanation. It tells you the story in a simple way, has great knowledge!

  • We are escaping from the theatre, since it was raining, and the truth is that we were impressed with the building and all parts which houses.

  • We were because I had really wanted to know the building and loved. The collection of sculptures and accessories Roman mosaics is spectacular. The crypt of this very well... I miss having more access to any area. The building is very nice, very cared aesthetics, materials and design... journeys to see the exhibition are welcome. Saturday afternoon and Sunday is free. Highly recommended.

  • O... M.... G!😅 I thought I could go through it all in one hour. Boy, was I mistaken. The museum is amazing and huge. The collection of artifacts is very very impressive and you have 3 floors to explore with everything ranging from statues to the daily items of the roman household. Can't wait to go back
  • Excellent exhibits. Well worth a visit. Liked the English explanations on some of the exhibits, the QR code link to the museum in English would have been even better. I learned a lot eg Romans blew glass, and the Roman coinage. The mosaics were fantastic, it must have been a real chore to reassemble and then to display them on the walls. Loved the crypt. Full marks Merida for preserving so much of the Roman architecture and artifacts- and building some of your city above the remains, and endeavouring to excavate do much more. 10/10
  • Disappointing. Yes the collection of Roman relics is impressive, especially the amazing mosaics, but why does something as large as this, not have audio guide in other languages? The app to download is only in Spanish and the Bluetooth pickup was providing information (in Spanish) on the wrong exhibit.
  • Best place to spend a hot afternoon in Merida. Exhibits are spectacular.
  • Good museum. Shame you couldn't take photos of the artifacts. Worth going to so you can see the photos of the excavations and the river in flood.
