small because a city with history of Cadiz what should have perhaps bigger, but the truth is that it makes a tour of most of Cadiz Worth the exhibition, Excellent material, if interested in Roman times with a few pieces of earlier cultures.

Could benefit (for us) from some english language descriptions - the fine art on the top floor is worth seeing, the modern art may not be to your taste, the archeo remains are good

There's not a lot to see, there was a brief leaflet in English, a fine arts gallery a lot of empty rooms, but I think there might of been renovations ongoing, we wouldn't have bothered spending any time there if the weather had been good

We visited this on a very rainy day in Cadiz. The archaeological pieces were great but the impression it gave was that not much happened in the fabulous city after the Romans. I was expecting a lot more of the history of this historical city. Admittedly there was some work being carried out to one of the rooms so perhaps... More

This museum is free entry and well worth a visit. It has amazing artefacts from the Roman times and before. Roman jewellery, glass, tools. Tombs, statutes of emperors. Really interesting. Modern art upstairs, well worth a visit

This archaeology Museum is located near Plaza de Mina, on the ground floor, really worth a look. Some excellent glassware and jewellery are highlights and there is a good collection of amphorae as you would expect from an historic gate. The Fine Arts Museum is on the second floor includes a Rubens canvas and the pride of the collection is... More

This is a lovely museum and free! We spent a long time admiring the large collection of paintings by Zubaran. We also saw some fine Murillos including the painting of the Mystical Marriage of Sant Caterina,his last work. The lower floor has some fabulous jewellery and archaeological finds showing the long history of this city.
