Lots on the building and early musical instruments but not that much on the pilgrimage itself - either ancient, or modern. Your ticket lets you come and go all day. But one visit was enough for me.

This museum is free, and represents an excellent effort by the curators to present the Camino. Don't miss the displays on the top floor of statues of Santiago, small pieces of Camino sculpture in jet black stone and others in silver. These are the highlights of the museum you won't find elsewhere.

First, be careful to go to the museum in Rua de San Miguel. There is another building called Museum das Pergrinacions close to the cathedral, and it is virtually empty and no good at all. This one has several rooms, with information cards in English in each room, covering pilgrimage across the world, the history of the St James cult,... More

Nice exhibits about the pilgrims of Santiago de Compostela. While we were there a temporary exhibit of Russian religious paintings was also on display. Both very interesting.

We thought of this place to be a more historic exhibit telling the history of pilgrimship but it was a modern building inside with a temporary music instrument and photography exhibition.

it was very cheap and there were some very nice computers one could you to find out more information about the church. Interesting but I think it is better to just go into the cathedral itself.

This is an interesting small museum, especially if you have just walked on the Camino. The entrance is free, the staff very helpful, and the information plentiful and in a number of languages.

The Museo das Perginacions (Museum of Pilgrimage) is an excellent place to find all the information about the pilgrimages along the Camino de Santiago. As a pilgrim it is a definite place to visit in Santiago de Compostela, as it contains a wealth of information about the history of the Camino and those who have walked it.
