This is a really mixed museum, they have a lot of 'fine art' which isn't my cup of tea but was well laid out with some fantastic pieces. The Roman and other artifacts were also really interesting and beautifully displayed. Considering this is a free museum I would suggest a visit even if you don't stay long.

We encountered this museum by chance in the afternoon of our lovely day in Cadiz. It has historical and artistic pieces from the local area. Our children (8, 5 and 1) we're with us. They liked the archaeological exhibits and some art work. The roman section was particularly good.

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

This is an excellent museum. We were delighted to discover that we got in for a free as EU members. Not only is the museum fantastic and fascinating, it also has an art gallery on the higher levels. A must see if you are in Cadiz.

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. They are just very simply but exquisitely displayed, the lighting is perfect. I have no problem that the text is only in Spanish, one can... More

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 It has a lot of nice oil paintings, historical documents...Its principle highlights is a wooden/ivory model of the city in the 18th century, 1/250 scale.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.

We enjoyed the museum very much, it had the history of trade and the Roman occupancy of Cadiz with many artefacts. Lovely space.
