Was excited to see this since the other archaeological museum in Cadiz is closed. This was a disappointment though it was incredibly small and we were able to see everything in less than 20 minutes. There was a short film in the beginning but it...More

Not straight forward to find but Google maps got us there. Amazing and well worth it. Excellently displayed and explained. The history of Cadiz from Phonicean times is really interesting.
