This is the sort of Archaeology that makes sense to everyone and puts it in context ( not all dusty display cases) . Normally my husband and I trawl around together but we ambled off with occasional "did you see ?" it is interesting interactive and very visual and, astonishingly, free (for EU !) An impressive new build and really nice loos ! and I now know how to design an arena !!

Thank usat4

Some archaeological museums can be too large and a little overdone. Not this one. It's a sensible size and provides a good representation of the city and it's life through all it's important periods. It's also very modestly priced at one euro fifty and fairly easy to find. It shouldn't take much more than an hour to visit. Be sure to go to every level. Also, have a drink of some sort in the square outside if it's a hot day. The hospitality is good there and the prices extremely reasonable.

Great museum with just enough exhibits (excellently labelled in English) to give insight into Cordoba's history. The excavations in the basement are complemented by some computer generated graphics of how things would have looked at the time and are well worth a look. Visiting the museum is free with an EU passport and it doesn't close in the middle of the day so is a great way to escape the afternoon heat.

This museum was well laid out. It was interesting to see the ruins under the building which have glass over them to protect. This was a theatre so you can get a real feel of what it must have been like all those years ago.

There was not a whole lot to see in the museum. It is very modern and had some great computer-generated graphics of the amphitheater ruins on the bottom floor. But most of the exhibits are not well labeled, and not terribly interesting. It would be a good place to get out of the rain, but unless you are really an archaeology nut, it is not the best site in Cordoba.
