The cost to enter is low. Around 3 euro. The staff are not that helpful of friendly. I would not come back again. As for the displays they are not that great. Pass unless it is raining.

This is really well laid out. Has informative videos. Curated very well into sections and over 3 floors. Very cheap entry. I spent a very quick 2 hours and was astonished how quickly time has passed. Unmissable.

After finishing the Camino, we visited this museum. Not only was it free, it was so incredibly well done, I was giddy with excitement. It was a mix of the history of pilgrimages, the Camino de Santiago, and the town of Santiago de Compostela. If...More
