This is a typical Spanish provincial museum. Not very large nor very well kept. But since the history of Cádiz is so interesting it's worth a visit for an hour or so. We only saw the ground floor. Interesting pieces from Phoenician and Roman times....More

Well laid out and captioned exhibits, most in English as well as Spanish. A good insight into the past of this ancient port and its value to the area across the millennia.

! wouldn't say this is a "must-see"The museum is a bit outdated compared to many we've been to. However, there are some highlights. Don't miss the pair of Phoenician sarcophagi, which together are regarded as the greatest exhibits on show. The male figure was discovered...More

Simply, a great museum. Yes,it is small, but that is a good thing. The layout is good. From Phoenicia to modern Cadiz, you will see gigantic statues of Roman emperors, much smaller but better bronze statues, and Zurbarán and Murillo and then interspersed with these...More

How good could a small museum in a small city be? Pretty darn good! We went just because we had nothing to do (and it was free) - and were hooked by the great exhibits here, including archaeological relics, old and new paintings, a puppet...More

This is just about the right size for a couple hours indoors from the rain. Good collection of pieces. Well worth the 1.5 Euro admission.

On a wet Sunday this was open and for that we, and many other visitors, were grateful. If you like archaeological artefacts then visit. I was disappointed because it has both art and archaeology in a rather unhappy mix. A lot of the labels are...More
