I found this museum interesting, however that is probably because I can read some Spanish. For English and overseas people I think they would enjoy it more if some things were written in English.

I found the artefacts on display to lack interpretation and their format of presentation of a traditional sense, meaning it was not engaging nor educational. Perhaps a guided tour would make the difference here, but without narration, the exhibitions consist of objects and painting, displayed in chronological sequences.

It is really a beautiful museum both the architecture, light and presentation of the artifacts, but where is the story telling - that makes it all come to live - and place it in the right context. With some audio guidance. This could have been a great experience.

This museum is one of the most complete museum in all the city, and also others big cities around Cádiz. It is a historical one, with a lot of information about different moments in the past. Many of that moments were also important to the rest of Spain culture as we know now. If you go to Cádiz, you must... More

The museum was very interesting. Who are the Phoenicians ? They seem to be in every archeological site around Europe I visit dating well back before the Romans . Definetlly my next stop is Lebanon, where there origins are.A definite must visit for everyone.

Stumbled on this little gem thinking it was a maritime museum and delighted in the antiquity on display. Phonecian finds, remnants of roman ruins, 1800 glories. Great info on the trade and development of this gorgeous little town encircled by a modern city.

Nice small museum and free for EU people but - sorry - not one of the best. Some religious at on the first floor and nice statue of Trajan on the bottom floor. Don't go out of your way for this one.

Great little museum tucked away in a beautiful plaza. They had some really neat exhibits when we went and our kids enjoyed it very much.

We visited this wonderful museum of Archeology, history, paintings, sculptures on a warm day in April. We received a warm welcome from the staff. The museum is entrance free, which is a pleasant surprise and delight me is that it is free from the tourist crowds. The Phoenician section was fascinating and we especially enjoyed the section showing (relatively) modern... More
