4.6
#1 of 28 in Museums in Extremadura
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.

    The Museum of art of the best considered Roman Empire. Perfect distribution of both architectural treasures as of all the elements that people of Roman city of Emerita Augusta needed for your daily life. Very beautiful mosaics, grave goods, tumuli, utensils of beauty, grave goods, columns that give an idea of the magnitude of the temples and buildings. From 14:00 h to 20:00 Saturday, is free. And on Sundays also. Enjoy.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Splendid museum. Exposed treasures and even the building itself is breathtaking. One of the finest museums of roman art and artifacts in the world. Los clasicos tienen que haber visto este museo. Una joya romana en Lusitania.
  • Worth the trip since admission is included with other roman sights. However many artifacts do not have English translations.
  • Extraordinary Museum of Roman art, the best of Spain. It suffers from lack of seats (in comfort and amount). On the ground floor there is a good conditioned medium although somewhat loud, on the floor due to the proximity of the ceilings and skylight makes more heat. Inexcusable business to understand and learn the passage of Rome by us
