  • Visit this museum is a must for anyone visiting the ruins, too. We can see in very good condition the piece of History very well organized.

  • The injustice of this museum is that you don't know what's better: If the content or the continent. Looks like nonsense but, to me, is what.

  • Multitude of mosaics of impressive dimensions. There are also a large number of Roman objects (coins, jewelry, tools, etc...)

  • The museum keeps you busy with a nice and spacious display of exhibits found in Merida. The explanations are easy to understand. In addition, the building housing the artifacts is also an impressive brick edifice.
  • Worth the trip since admission is included with other roman sights. However many artifacts do not have English translations.
  • Splendid, spacious, luminous, no crowded Museum. Worth not to be missed if you are going to Merida.

This museum is one of the most important of Spain is its Romanesque style, it is very well organized and preserved, Merida offers the tourist a very nice city to visit and learn about Roman history, we can find many interesting things, crosses the Guadiana river, two bridges one with over 2,000 years of history, and give them best preserved in the world , and the other modern. It is a city that deserves to be visited.
