I visited this museum with my family on the strength of the reviews on this site. Having been to the museum neither my husband nor I could understand the glowing reviews that other people have written. The museum is very average or even worse than average. The collection of archaeological objects includes some lovely and interesting pieces but the displays... More

Very pleasant museum, well laid out chronologically with plenty of English language information. Also, remarkably quiet considering the City it is in. Free admission for EU citizens.

This museum is a must for all visitors to Cadiz. The oldest city in Europe and the museum represents Cadiz throughout the ages. There are the artefacts dating back to the Phoenicians up to 2000BC.

This amazing small local museum deserves a visit if you are interested in the history of Cadiz. It has a lot of nice oil paintings, historical documents...Its principle highlights is a wooden/ivory model of the city in the 18th century, 1/250 scale. The old town is beyond this point. At first, there was just one Gate (Puerta), but they built... More

Cadiz is a 3000 year old city, and all of the history is documented at the museum. We loved the marionet exhibit on one of the higher floors, as well as the Roman statues.

The ground floor with archaeology from the Cadiz area is wonderful, but not really worthwhile trekking round the art galleries upstairs.

A museum worth paying attendance fee, but it is free and no donation box. I think the most interesting area was the puppet room. Very good and well worth a visit.

I live in Liverpool and our museums contain a lot of relevant information about our city. This museum is mainly Roman artifacts and modern art paintings. This fine but will tell you little of the mores recent history of Cadiz
