First, the admission is free to EU citizens (choke on that, Brexiteers!). Then you get a free floor guide. Then you get to see Phoenician, Greek, Iberian and Roman artifacts. The Phoenician sarcophagi and the monumental statue of Trajan are unique and the stars of the display. Not to be outdone, there is a fine art gallery too. The religious... More

If you like things Roman then pop into this small, well kept museum in a pretty Square near San Antonio. It's free on Sundays and there were six rooms on the ground floor devoted to Phoenician and Roman artefacts. The labels are in Spanish, but there is a leaflet in English. I particularly liked a beautiful floor mosaic, the funerary... More

Some fascinating stuff here,especially from the era of the Phoenicians, but the best part of the exhibition is on the top floor, where there's a unique display of traditional puppet-shows from the area. I can't remember seeng anything like it anywhere.

Although the exhibits are a little eclectic, there are some real gems to see: two Phoenician sarcophagi; stunning Roman jewellery; some fine local paintings. However, there was very little information about any of the exhibits in either Spanish or English, particularly for the paintings, which was rather frustrating. I had the impression that it's a small, provincial museum which lacks... More

Free entry to this museum in one of the many love plazas in Cadiz Old Town. A fascinating mix of archeology and artwork (some excellent) and verry well worth a visit.

With a city museum you expect to get a lot of exhibits on the town and the area, but with the Cadiz Museum two thirds of it paintings, both old and modern. The ground floor houses the archaeological section and is fascinating, with beautiful gold jewellery and glass. It's worth a visit for this section, but overall rather disappointing.

We went on a Sunday morning and the entrance was free. The archaeology section is on the ground floor and the highlights were the Phoenician sarcophagi and the exquisite gold jewelry. The fine arts collection on the upper floors contains paintings by Zurbaran, among others, as well as the altarpiece that cost Murillo his life.

Cadiz has so much history and it is all explained here. Lots of very interesting artifacs that have been found are on display here. A must visit.

What a charming musuem and free for EU citizens too! I was not sure what to expect but found it was full of remarkable roman and phoenician pieces and statues but would say that some of them were the best I had ever seen. The glass and pottery was by and large exceptional the statues were beautiful if not so... More

as always i find the museums full of interest although they are quite big you can at least pick out what is liked by you. The entry fees are minimum but this little gem has an upstairs although when we were there one section was cosed but it was very interesting worth the visit
