“Surprise discovery”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We would not have known about this but for the guide who mentioned it during a walking tour. Well presented Roman ruins under such a modern piece of architecture. Good value for the AV supporting the exhibits.

“Small, well presented with good visual displays”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

This is below the Parasol and takes advantage of modern technology. By themselves the Roman remains show little to the lay observer but the screens by the various ruins give a superb and informative display of what they would have looked like. If you visit the Parasol, which you should, spending twenty odd minutes here is a great way to learn about the origins of Seville.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Having already visited the Alcazar we found out about this wonderful new "museum" (it's not well advertised) and visited early the next morning for free (having shown our Alcazar tickets). Basically it is Roman remains that have been excavated and left in situ. with walkways between the various bits, some with glass floors over specific exhibits. It was quite empty but that meant we were able to access the info. on touch screens in English that were dotted around the exhibits. We spent a very enjoyable half hour or so viewing everything and especially enjoyed viewing the mosaics. We then took a local bus to the Italica site to view even more Roman remains/mosaics. What a day!

“A new museum well worth a visit.”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This has only been open abot a year and we did not know it existed until we stumbled on it. Fascinating building outside - best seen late at night. An archeological museum covering this small site representng the founding of Sevile and covering the period from about 200 BC to 500 AD. Mostly Roman building remains. Very well done with imaginative lighting and some very informative interactive units. General information is provided in Spanish and English, guide booklets in many languages included in the entrance fee. Very quiet place, only half-a-dozen other visitors when we were there. Recommended - but probably not with small children.
