Sits on a nice square at the corner Plaza de Mina. Not much to see in reality. I would probably give it a miss.

The archaeology section was interesting but dated. The fine art floor was closed for refurbishment. There was an unusual exhibition of puppets on the third floor

The Cadiz museum includes much like art, archeology, and more. We enjoyed it although the art section was closed for some reason. Otherwise a good but mixed collection. We enjoyed the Phoenician and Roman sections.

The museum of Cádiz is a fun place to spend an afternoon. The history of the city is fascinating, beginning with the Phoenician arrival from whence the name Gadir originates (meaning stronghold/sea wall), supplanted by the Romans, who , using the original Phoenician roit, referred to the city as Gades and then, over the more modern period, the name morphed into the Cádiz we know now. The museum has a range of artifacts dating across all these periods and is free at present, although the artwork area is daily currently not open and charges may apply when that area is once again accessible.

Some interesting archeological finds are on display, such as the Phoenician sarcophages, found in Cadiz. Apart from the little leaflet one gets upon entering (EU citizens free entrance), everything is documented in Spanish. The first floor (fine arts) was closed due to repair. On the 2nd floor you can see a selection of traditional puppets and marionettes.
