Because Cadiz was founded by Phoenicians, then later taken over by Romans, then Moors and Spaniards the museum has a wealth of unusual artifacts. A visit will help put the history of Andalucia in perspective.

Great insight into Cadiz history with artefacts and paintings. A must see on everyones list Spanish nationals are free entry otherwise a very small fee. After the museum visit visit one of the cafes or bars also on Plaza Mina.

wonderful exhibits, especially the less famous bracelet with rock crystal horseman, as well as the better know sarcophagi. Immaculately displayed

This museum is well-presented. It is frustrating that the placards and labels are not in English, but the English brochure they give you at the entrance is clear, detailed, and well-written and it is not to hard to identify the objects discussed. A fun thing for the kids is to load up the Google translate app and have them use... More

It is the otherside of the Cathedral and you may have to ask for directions from inside the cathedral or the bell tower as it is not signposted at all. There are some interesting religious artifacts here and some dazzling glittering Altar pieces on show. There is also a quantity of church artwork. There are clean public toilets on site.... More

Not impressed here at all. I was really hoping to see some interesting and historic artefacts on my visit however I was very disappointed. I found the staff unhelpful and when we toured the museum it was short on information and scarce on material in English language.

I visited the museum as I had read it had some interesting artefacts. I was surprised by the wonderful range of their exhibits, which were displayed well, with good clear information. A highlight were the sarcophagi. I only viewed the artwork briefly.

This is free for EU visitors, in common with many museums of this type in Spain. It covers the usual periods of local history, with two notable sarcophagi from the Phoenician period as the stand out items. It also features Roman remains from Cadiz, Medina Sidonia, Sancti Petri and Baelo Claudia, which are interesting. There is some good glassware and... More

Maybe not great museum but worth to visit. Free for UE, 1hr. Museum on the best plaza in Cadiz, Plaza de Mina.

The museum covers centuries of history, from artifacts from Roman times to art of today. We enjoyed the two sarcophagus from Roman times, the mosaic tile floor from an excavation, the paintings by Zurbaran, and the modern paintings. The signage is a little difficult for those whose command of Spanish isn't so good, though.
