Great small museum to visit to learn about coin making in Segovia. Audio guide was interesting and informative. The exhibits were well presented. The models and reconstructed machines were particularly impressive. It is down the hill from the Alcazar and well worth a quick visit.

We almost walked past this museum but it was raining and decided to check it out to stay dry. So glad that we decided to visit. This museum gives a very thorough history of Sergovia. The exhibits were information and well-designed. We learned quite a lot and I would recommend this museum to anyone.

This regional museum should be in the list of places to see in Segovia as it has a quite interesting collection of artifacts and displays of the small city and the region surrounding it. Obviously it is still a very well kept secret! It is behind the cathedral, in a renovated house over the town walls, not too far from... More

This is a lovely little museum housed in the former Casa del Sol on the town walls of Segovia. It presents everything the visitor might wish to know about Segovia including geography, geology and history. The exhibits are clear, modern, well-lit and well-presented. There are some brief descriptions in English but most are in Spanish. Being able to read or... More

Because it's just a little off the main path to the Alcazar (somewhat at the end of the road behind the Cathedral, along the city's old walls), this museum does not get much traffic from tourists. Unfortunately, the fact that it was so empty does make for a somewhat discomforting experience sometimes. Mixed bag of artefacts on display as well,... More

This museum gives a comprehensive history of Segovia and the surrounding villages with many historical artifacts on display. All of the displays are in Spanish, although each panel does have a good summary in English as well. The museum is located along the city wall and inside has several rooms dedicated to each era of Segovia's history, beginning with the... More

The museum was not along the main street. From Arcasal, turn right and walk along the small street. I could learn history of this town very well. I could learn how the warter brigdge was built and how Arcasal was built to today's figure.

this is an amazing museum that does not seem to get much attention. It's exhibits -- which are extensive -- show the evolution and development of Segovia from pre-historic times through the 20th century. Building itself is worth the visit. This old slaughterhouse has been completely re-designed especially to house almost two thousand items of historical interest. Takes about an... More

We visited this Museum of Segoia because it was pouring with rain. From the bargain entrance fee of just 1 euro 20!! to the lay out of the exhibits and all the video presentations in between it was a really interesting experience. Much of the labelling is in Spanish but there are bits of English and many of the videos... More

A bit hard to find, but this museum within the walls is very well laid out and very interesting on Segovia through the ages with varied presentation methods. A bargain too - normally E1.20, but free at weekends.
