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

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.
