Really impressed with the collection of artworks from major Spanish artists. Murillo and others. Well presented and you can really get close to the works. Wish the descriptions would have had English subtitles as well but, hey, we ARE in Spain, after all!

For 1.5 euros for non-EU patrons (free for EU) the museum combines findings from the Phoenician and Roman periods on the first floor with paintings on the 2nd and 3rd floors including a Rubens. Quite reasonable. We were there for a little over an hour.

The museum has two sections: archeology and art. I have to admit that I did not visit the art section, but I did have a thorough look at the archeology display. This consists mainly of Phoenician and Roman artifacts. The museum houses two anthropoid sarcophagi of Phoenician origin. On a back wall in the Roman section are two graffiti drawn... More

Good depiction of the early history of Cadiz particularly the Phoenician and Roman periods but nothing much more. Paintings are good for the nature of the gallery the Zurbaran.

If you are interested in prehistoric information about Spain, this is a good place to visit because this museum explores the early influences on the region. In fact, it was so interesting, I wish there was more information in English. There is a map of the area showing the archeological changes. After the museum, you can walk the city to... More

Not the best historical or archeology museum I've visited. Quite a lot of objects from pre historic time to the roman and moorish eras. Unfortunately most info about the objects are in Spanish. The second floor has quite a large collection of paintings from the 15th century to contemporay art. The entrance is free for citizens within the EU. Been... More

Sadly we did not have sufficient time for Cadiz in our Spanish excursion. Most interesting in this museum, to me, the collection of ancient artifacts dating from the period of Phoenician settlement here, maybe 3000 years ago. The city has fallen under the influence of Carthage, Rome, Gothic peoples, Moors, British, among others, so its history is very rich being... More
