This is an excellent local Museum with some stunning finds from Phoenician and Roman times which are well displayed. Surprisingly little about the Islamic period though. There is also some excellent art works but what made this a stand out experience was the touring exhibition of "In wine truth'. This was a series of contemporary and amusing photographs and paintings based on traditional pictures. It was stunning - an excellent and interesting museum

Great museum. Free entry. 3 floors, the ground floor has an impressive collection of Phoenician and Roman remains. The second floor is mostly Spanish art, and the 3rd floor is dedicated to traditional puppets, which is a lot more interesting than it sounds! Definitely worth an hour of your time, we really enjoyed it.

A quiet cool and lovely museum

Archeological part was very good and between the official website of the museum (English) and google translate app, I got some understanding of the fascinating artifacts. Sorry my understanding of Spanish is very limited, but hey technology is here to help us.

A very nice Roman mosaic but also earlier stuff (neolithic, bronze age etc) all laid out with grace and space.

The paintings were interesting (church, renaissance) but did not interest me as much as the archeological section.

Great place and peaceful too.

The free museum draws heavily on the archaeology of the area with displays of Roman and Phoenician remains, including two spectacular Phoenician coffins. Upstairs there are rooms of art with works by Murillo and Zurbaran and with modern art on the second floor. Allow an hour for the visit.

The small museum charts the history of Cadiz and houses the largest art galleries in Andalusia. The ground and three floors are full of paintings, pottery and mosaic artefacts, and on the third floor is a collection of puppets made for village fiestas. Excellent value for free admission, worth a visit.

First of all, the entrance was free, so if one has time, then I would go, but if you're short on time in Cadiz, I would likely invest it on other places. Small museum of mostly artefacts. The staff at the entrance were welcoming. The signs are mostly only in Spanish - which I can read - but would not be helpful to many others. The third floor display of modern art would have interested me, but it was closed for some reason.

Only the archaeological section was open as the others were under renovation. Nevertheless there is much to see and enjoy.

Given the city’s long history, from Phoenician times through Roman occupation and onwards, great displays recount the eras with fascinating artefacts.

Roman times are well represented. Mosaics are just some of the standout exhibits.

Found it all a little too beige with mainly stone artefacts on display. Eyes dilated at the art on the walls. Shame the other Cadiz museum was closed for renovation otherwise we’d have gone there (sorry)! Our favourite section was the old photographs in the sparsely decorated building adjacent.

I should start by saying I'm not a massive fan of museums. I have a short attention span and after half-an hour I'm usually looking for the exits. But, in this case I was engrosssed by the unfolding story of the history of Cadiz told through artefacts and models. The city's history goes back to Pre-Roman Phoenician times and two of the prize exhibits are perfectly preserved Phoenician sarcophagi. But there is also finely worked jewellery, art and architecture, statuary and models showing the development of Cadiz as a major port at the western end of the meditteranean trading routes. Fascinating and when you do reach your limit there is a beautiful shady square outside where you can drink in some of what modern-day cadiz has to offer. Recommended.

A fantastic museum to visit for an hour or so. Ground floor has an archeological history of Cadiz. The exhibitions are really very good, including Phoenician and Roman exhibits. Also on on the ground floor is an exhibition of contemporary Spanish art. Floor 1 has religious art and floor 3 more contemporary art.

The scale of the exhibitions rooms make them very accessible ( set in an old court yard building ). A very pleasant and educational way to spend an hour or two in “cool” surroundings

The only downside was the exhibit labels on the Ground floor were only in Spanish but with “Mr Google” it was easy to figure things out.

Entrance is free for EU citizens ( ID required- driving license or passport ).
