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.

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

The city of Cadiz has long multicultural history which is shown in the museum. You cannot miss huge Phoenician sarcofaghi and great collection of old jewelry, statues and many other artefacts. The admission is free.
