  • not worth a visit for anyone interested in history of area. lots of roman stuff, so has every museum in Brexitland, France and Italy, and elsewhere. Some interesting prehistoric rock art. In an area famed for islamic and christian culture it is all very poorly represented here.
  • The museum is located in a spectacularly beautiful plaza called Plaza de America. It’s actually worth going there just to see this breathtaking plaza. Bring your camera. The museum is an impressive, large building with stately and ornate architecture. However, once inside, the collection is quite small and seems to occupy only maybe 5 to 10% of the building. For me what makes the collection special is that all artifacts are local from the province of Sevilla. Entry is super cheap too. Like 2 euros (I can’t remember exactly). Even if you’re not interested in archeology, go to the plaza de America!
  • Spectacular location and garden. Great place for photographers.
  • Empty, lots of good sculpture. Really thought provoking
  • Seville archaeological museum is housed in a beautiful pavilion in the Plaza de America near the Plaza de Espana. Exhibits range from early prehistory through to the Middle Ages with an emphasis on the Roman period, primarily finds from the nearby Roman city of Italica. Many of the mosaics and statuary from Italica found their way to the museum. An extremely good museum as you would expect from the capital city on Andalucia.
