In need of a makeover
Jan 2020
Museum is located in middle of the old town and although entrance is only 2euros 50cents per person I didn’t think much of the displays or layout. There is a pamphlet in English but to be honest I found it difficult to read the information or get my head round displays and artefacts. There are QR codes as you walk round which is handy if you have a smartphone. Some of the upper galleries display contemporary art depicting scenes from around Carmona but in my opinion the museum is in desperate need of a makeover.

Attractive Museum
Sep 2019
Stopped at Carmona and visited the Museo de la Ciudad. It is a relatively small museum however lots of very intersting artefacts including mosaics, pots, arrows etc. You need just over an hour to have a good look around. We were there on a Tuesday and it was free entry on this day.

Museum within a Palace
Apr 2019 • Couples
This was our second visit to Carmona in two years. On my first visit the owner of the hotel where we stayed in Cordoba came from Carmona so he convinced my lady to stop on our way to Seville. The museum is housed in an old (I think 1600's) palace and it is on two floors although much of the ground floor is an open patio atrium. The exhibits are first class, tracing the city history from before the arrival of the Romans for whom Carmona was an important fortress, up to modern times. There are paintings, the usual swords and other weapons, and a series of exhibits where you look through a peephole and see old photographs. I recall seeing similar things in America when I was a child so it would have been the 1940's. This is a must-see.

A delightful visit
Apr 2019 • Couples
At first glance, we did not realize, that this long house with the balcony is the museum. We had different imaginations, how does this kind of institution look like. Later on, I read about it, that the museum operates in a palace from the 16th century. On the ground floor is a charming patio, that is quite common in luxurious, noble, Spanish houses.
There is an elevator if you go up to the first floor, but I liked the stairs so much, that instead walked.
It was delightful to walk around and observe some utterly different kind of collections, from furniture to Agricultural hand tools, from paintings to findings of the archeologists. The most entertaining things were peephole. Looking through them, I could see some impressive old buildings, and I felt, if I reached out, I would be able to touch them.
A lot of paintings were also delightful. Of course, they don't have El Greco or Pablo Picasso or Joan Miro, but even without to be an expert I was able to judge, that they were up to par works. The topic of the paintings was Carmona, and I thought that it was a brilliant idea to make this collection.
If you visit Carmona, this museum has to be on your "things to do" list.

Impressive Collection Of Relics That Go Way back
May 2018 • Couples
This was a reasonably well done museum with a good collection of historical artifacts and old mosaics that date back many years and presumably dug up around Carmona. Well worth a visit as it provides a good history of the town dating back to Paleolithic times. There is an entrance fee .

Don't miss this, if you have the time
Nov 2017 • Friends
I loved this museum. I had to make the choice between visiting here vs. the Roman Necropolis and am glad I chose the museum. First, the collection is wonderful and man of the pieces have been excavated from the necropolis Second, it is located in a palace, so the building itself is architecturally interesting. The woman at the front desk is friendly and helpful.

Surprising Kingdom of Turditana
Aug 2017 • Couples
Excellent municipal museum with a wonderful collection of artefacts from the earliest times until the present, housed in a fascinating building.

Suspect the museum is underfunded as some displays were not functioning, however, it has a great story to tell and does it thoughtfully.

Well worthy of a visit.

a look at the history of Carmona

A very interesting museo that tells you about the history of this place from when it began to the pesent day. Including showing a short film about what happened even the earthquake in the early 1500s.

An overview of the history of the town
Apr 2017 • Couples
The museum, free on Tuesdays as we found out, gives an overview of the history of the city and has some nice roman mosaics. If short on time, I would skip it for a walk through town.

Could have missed it, worth a visit
Sep 2016 • Couples
We were staying at the Parador and decided to take a walk around town. We walked past the Museo de la Ciudad and decided to see what it was about. Once inside we were surprised how much was there and how well done it was. Worth a visit if you are in Carmona
