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

Easy to find. Just walk around the building enjoying all they have to offer, you will be impressed. according to our guide, This museum has been restored and the works of art are very well presented in a modern way. The museum is not very big and it is enough to see the masterpieces directly: wonderful Zurbaran and Murillo's last... More

we loved this museum(no charge), Very representative and interesting with rare pieces including two Phoenician sarcophagus. It's worth giving it a try is one of the few museums with free admission that I found in spain.

I rate this delightful museum as among the best small museums in Spain. It even ranks with my home town (Paris) favorites. The sarcophagus dating from 1100bc are stunning. Marvelous Morilla's and Rueben's are on display. It was all free and beautifully kept. Go do it if in Cadiz

small because a city with history of Cadiz what should have perhaps bigger, but the truth is that it makes a tour of most of Cadiz Worth the exhibition, Excellent material, if interested in Roman times with a few pieces of earlier cultures.

Could benefit (for us) from some english language descriptions - the fine art on the top floor is worth seeing, the modern art may not be to your taste, the archeo remains are good

There's not a lot to see, there was a brief leaflet in English, a fine arts gallery a lot of empty rooms, but I think there might of been renovations ongoing, we wouldn't have bothered spending any time there if the weather had been good

If you want to see some sarcofagus, this is your stop. This is a very nice small museum with a wonderful collection of artifacts and beautiful old oil paintings from monasteries and convents. Massive old paintings...

We visited this on a very rainy day in Cadiz. The archaeological pieces were great but the impression it gave was that not much happened in the fabulous city after the Romans. I was expecting a lot more of the history of this historical city. Admittedly there was some work being carried out to one of the rooms so perhaps... More
