Free entry and a Sorolla canvas. Great overview of the history of the city from prehistoric time to present day.

We visited last week and found the museum really interesting. A short guide is available in Engish and some of the rooms have translations of the main commentary however more of these would enhance the experience for those of us very interested in what we were viewing. Lots of ancient finds from Europe's oldest city and a variety of interesting... More

This is a museum run by the city of Cadiz and about the city. It is free. The most interesting part to me was the ground floor that contains the archeological section.

We enjoyed our viewing at this attraction. Cadiz being one of the oldest cities in Europe had centuries of artifacts. The roman period was highlighted and was well worth our time. The museum was small enough to add onto many other sites in this twin for a day visit.

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.
