Museum has a nice range of paintings, althought if you are not that much into spanish history there is not much that you can do there.

Lovely museum, spread over 3 floors. Ground floor mainly dedicated to antiquities, with much on show being discovered in the region. First floor has mainly classical painting and the top floor is modern/abstract. For us, the kids enjoyed the sarcophagi, statues, and mosaics on the the ground floor, but interest slipped as they went up the levels. Entry is free... More

The museum is free, air conditioned and spacious. It has archaeology on the ground floor, older art on the first and contemporary art on the top floor. There are certainly some interesting exhibits in the archaeology section but it wasn't the easiest history lesson of Cadiz to follow with too many exhibits lacking explanation and context. Our kids (9 and... More

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.

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.
