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.

The archeological museum is perfect in size, scope and editing. Just enough to give you the sense of the pre-history, the Phoenician and Roman city, primarily using exquisite jewellery, glassware, pottery and delightful statuettes. Not to be missed.

Very much enjoyed our visit especially the Rubens and art gallery. Roman section very interesting and well presented. On the downside there was no disabled entry only walking up steps of the main entrance which was difficult when in a wheelchair. Lifts to upper levels but ground floor only accessible by more steps. No English explanations on exhibits but English... More

We visited last week and found the museum really interesting. A short guide is available in Engish and some of the rooms have translations of the main commentary however more of these would enhance the experience for those of us very interested in what we were viewing. Lots of ancient finds from Europe's oldest city and a variety of interesting... More

This is a museum run by the city of Cadiz and about the city. It is free. The most interesting part to me was the ground floor that contains the archeological section. There are artifacts dating back to paleolithic times with an emphasis on roman artifacts and sculptures. The next two floors contain art associated with the city. The second... More

We enjoyed our viewing at this attraction. Cadiz being one of the oldest cities in Europe had centuries of artifacts. The roman period was highlighted and was well worth our time. The museum was small enough to add onto many other sites in this twin for a day visit.

This is a really mixed museum, they have a lot of 'fine art' which isn't my cup of tea but was well laid out with some fantastic pieces. The Roman and other artifacts were also really interesting and beautifully displayed. Considering this is a free museum I would suggest a visit even if you don't stay long.
