If you are into the Romans, you should be into this.

A world class museum, housed in a beautiful building, with an incredible amount of Roman "stuff" to be seen. The mosaics on display are amazing. Well worth a visit!

It is essential to visit this museum with an outstanding collection of Roman artifacts from huge mosaics and beautiful statues. Objects of everyday life and also numismatic in the Empire. Worth visiting. Saturdays afternoon and Sundays morning it's free!

This museum is very big and spacious. It is really interesting, has very roman objects, statues and other constructions that gives you a great notion about the Romans in Merida. It also possible the see the Crypte and a roman road. Really interesting visit!

I am an utter history geek so the chance to stop into the Roman museum was irresistible. The building itself is amazing. (Think the grand high ceilings of the British museum meets the Spartan simplicity of an art gallery) The exhibits were lovingly presented with most signage in both Spanish and English. There were a noticeable number of items out... More

It is located right in front of the Roman Theater. It is a small, but beautiful museum! The collection is rich, but I felt that the descriptions of the pieces should be more detailed.

The museo was free on Saturday afternoons and Sunday morning. Lots to see. You can also go underneath the museo to see preserved walls of houses and roads. Well worth a visit.

Merida has an astonishing array of roman buildings, all worth seeing. But this museum is what ties them all together with many of the best items from all the sites around town being on show here. The range of items is impressive from the smallest everyday items to statuary to massive mosaics. Indeed the last item is particularly spectacular -... More

Brilliant. Next to the hugely impressive theatre and amphitheatre. The modern, airy building is plain and light, showing the amazing sculptures and mosaics at their best. Not an overwhelming amount. I was glad that arriving at Merida on Monday meant that we had seen the sites before the museum on Tuesday. This put the " real" statues in context having... More

Visited this museum in late August. Excellent mosaics inside as well as many, many artifacts of the Roman settlements in Merida. If you enjoy Roman artifacts you will be at home here. If not, it is at least a cool building for the hot Merida August weather. My wife and I found the exhibits interesting, but eventually they had so... More
