“So sad”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

This should be better presented and publicised. It all looked very sad. The stuff isn't sensational becuase Visigothis finds are rare but the manuscripts were not well labelled. Such a shame but worth a visit ( it was free when we visited) as the fusion of architectual style ( nothing to do with Visigoths) is in itself interesting. No guide or information in English. Do your homework first.

“I need more stars! This was probably my favorite building in Toledo!”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

As soon as I walked into the Church of San Roman, where the Museum of Visigothic Culture is, I was entranced. The walls and ceilings with their painted decorations in the Mudejar style were absolutely extraordinary. I am so thankful that these decorations from the 14th century have been preserved. The display cases of artifacts from Visigothic Spain (pre-Moorish conquest, i.e., before 700 A.D.) are also worth seeing, but for me, the star of the show is the building housing these exhibits.
