  • This museum contains a large part of what was the city of Italica, Trajan wedge one of the great emperors of Rome.

  • Although it is not good to be indispensable in pleasure trips, the Arqueologico of Seville was a quote that we could not attend. A full tour of the Museum means a route chronological, beginning in the lower Paleolithic and ending in the middle ages with Arab and Mudejar materials, and need a minimum of two hours to enjoy a little of its contents. But, who said fear? So began the halls of prehistory, where you will find materials of ceramic, stone, copper and bone from the site of the age of the copper of Valencina de la Concepción, the set of idols, characterized by its large eyes in the form of soles, which are considered the most ancient representations, on our ground, of divinity. Also in the plant basement of La Angorrilla and El Gandul bronze vessels and the delicate ivories of Carmona. Already in the first floor, the monographic room dedicated to El Carambolo, with the reproduction of the magnificent treasure of gold in their original context: a sanctuary dedicated to Phoenician deities. We can also see the representation of the Phoenician goddess Astarte, made in bronze and sitting with his feet on a footstool in which appears the most ancient text which is known in the Peninsula, between the 8th and 7th BC On the main floor, the main dish: the Roman world. Few times so many and such beautiful sculptures can be gathered, mostly from Italica, funerary monuments, mosaics, ceramics, etc. Indeed, it's best not to read about them but enjoy it. Do not miss it!

  • We have come to the Museum by accident. When we found out that admission is free for EU citizens (you must submit proof of identity), so we decided to visit. It was one of the best things we've done in the city. Simple exposure to the local findings of prehistory and antiquity clearly described and display each period. And the simplicity of doing a tour of the very user-friendly. Who is the least bit curious about this part of history, will certainly be satisfied. If the Museum has done more label in English, that would be great.

  • A nice, friendly little museum. Hardly any non-Spanish information. Friendly staff. Beautiful building in beautiful park. Interesting stuff.
  • The collection of this museum is vast and impressive. This museum has some incredible pieces. It's great because it's a perfect size museum and not too overwhelming.
  • Even though even tourist information says it's open till 20:30, it's open only till 14.30. Many people were disappointed yesterday. Don't they need money?
  • Not great for non-Spanish speakers. No translations!
  • Great Roman Exhibits. Lovely building
