Go here if you have heard that Cadiz is the oldest city in Europe (and care), whether you believe it or not. If you are a specialist in ancient history you may be surprised at the labels on some of the artifacts. The Roman crystal collection is the best in the world.

Definitely, a worthwhile visit! The museum is located in Plaza Mina, Cadiz (Old Town). It will give you a sense of the history of Cadiz. When my husband and I went, it was on a Tuesday. Admission to the museum was free. The entrance fee usually is 1.50 euros. Definitely, worth your time to check out the interesting collection of... More

The museum has 3 floors - 1st is archaeology/history, 2nd fine art, 3rd contemporary art. If you want to do all 3 allow your self plenty of time, or plan more than 1 visit. We went a couple of hours before closing and only did the 1st floor, and even so we had to rush a little at the end.... More

We were very fortunate to visit Cadiz on International Tourist day. Tourist center ladies offered us a free walking tour of Cadiz which included recently discovered Roman Ampitheater, 1st century fish farm, still being excavated underneath the modern city and the Museum of Cadiz with the ancient artifacts of world class displays. Ancient finds are still being discovered and added... More

We spent a couple of hours looking round this lovely building and enjoyed the wide variety of things on display. My favourite paintings were on the top floor but they really have so much to take in. I have difficulty walking too far and was happy to see they had a lift.

We really liked the archeology department and the contemporary art floor. This is free if you are an EU citizen (go soon UK people) and a nominal fee for non EU citizens.

It's free, so it's worth a look. All of the labelling is in Spanish do you'll struggle if your language skills aren't up to it. Basic Spanish will do. To be honest the Phoenician, Roman etc section has nothing remarkable. Go upstairs for the art. Unfortunately religious art does nothing got me do the pride of place Rubens was wasted... More

This is a nice little museum which has a wide variety of pieces going back thousands of years. Many of the paintings were from the 16th century and were mostly religious but there were also some very pleasing ones from the 19th and early 20th, which were more to my taste. Given that this is free and interesting, I have... More

The museum, just a 7 minute walk from the cruise dock, is located in Plaza Mina. The square was easy to find using the tourist map, but the museum isn't well signed - look for the large building on the square.The museum has several floors of displays, combining both archaeological finds and local art work, many from the 17th C...

Yes it has all the displays on view, the ground floor full of ancient artifacts which is a problems when visiting these places when you have seen one then you have seen the same else where. 2nd floor full of religious paintings which becomes tiresome. The 3rd floor does open up to more modern works of art, especially the "Lady... More
