It seems like a small museum, but you can easily spend 1.5 hours there. The main thing that makes it worth visiting is the incredible scale model of Cádiz from the 18th century. It also contains lots of paintings, maps, guns and other interesting paraphernalia from the 18th and 19th century. Certainly worth a visit (and free entry)!…

Great architecture, well presented displays, even a painting of the English burning Cadiz, this museum is an excellent guide to the Liberal constitution of 1812 and its aftermath.

As previous reviewers have commented, it was nice that practically every exhibit had an excellent English translation. A useful addition, particularly for British visitors who have no idea of the importance of the 1812 Constitution in Spanish history, would be a brief summary of the historical background, either in the form of a short video (there was a TV/video on the ground floor, although it wasn't plugged in), or a page or two of A4. As it is, we are currently exploring that on the internet! We were also fortunate in finishing our visit just as a very large group of Spanish teenage schoolchildren arrived! Don't be put off by some of the negative reviews - this is really worth visiting. And you even get to see a nice scale model of HMS Victory, with Lord Nelson standing by.…
