“Could have skipped it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

While the views of the river from the Torre de Oro, the museum itself is overpriced and I didn't learn much. It is a naval history museum. You can definitely get better views from the Giralda Tower!

“Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

We'll worth a visit includes a small but interesting naval museum and stunning views down the river. Admission price is slightly over priced for what you get but at the end of the day it's worth the effort

“Interesting Architecture”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

The Golden Tower has interesting architecture and also an interesting history. There is a very good view at the top of the tower and some of the naval displays in the museum are interesting.

“Visit to the naval museum”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

To start with I would like to say that TripAdvisor has this location misplaced. Had not been for my acquaintance with Seville's landmarks, and I would have walked miles in the wrong direction! A couple of interesting things about naval memorabilia but nothing much. It's worth a visita just for the views from above and to take nice pictures of the city. However, there are steep stairs one must climb and if you're nota fit you might as well miss it! It's not worth an hearth attack!

“It's all in the view from the top”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

The tower, a landmark in Sevilla for centuries, is now a not-that-interesting naval museum. A pricey 3 euros admission gets you in, but you probably won't spend much time in the museum. Just keep climbing. The view from the top is the goal. Although there are great views from Giralda Tower, they're somewhat obstructed. The views from Torre del Oro aren't so what you get is a lovely panoramic view of Sevilla.
