Overview
More
Andalucía’s most important archaeological collection, housed in a pavilion in Maria Luisa Park, charts everything from the Neolithic age, through the Roman occupation to the time of the Moors. The stand-outs are a statuette of Astarte-Tanit, a Phoenician fertility goddess who held the Mediterranean in thrall around the 8th-century BC, and the Carambolo Treasures, a stunning hoard of gold jewelry from the 6th century which shows clear Oriental influence--and may leave you musing about the people who lived in Andalucía 1500 years ago. Closed on Mondays.

Although production of your passport will get you in without charge, there is only a limited amount of English Language labelling. The rooms are described in English but the individual artifacts are not. If you only have a passing interest in archaeology and limited Spanish...More

If you are archeology lovers, you are welcome here. A large number of exhibits, and the building itself is very beautiful. Especially not different from other museums on this subject, there is everything from primitive excavation to crockery, yes beads, to antique statues. We were...More

I couldn't absolutely believe we were the only visitors! And it was free, that day! It's filled with beautiful Roman masterpieces rescued by the nearby Roman city Italica and all the rooms are beautifully organized. If you love Roman art, DO NOT miss it!

This museum is free to EU citizens. I'm British and although all other museums have accepted my answer in here they asked for my passport. Obviously, police and tourist offices recommend you don't carry passports around cities. I have no proof of ID, so I...More

This is not a world class museum but it's a great example of it's type -- small archaeological museums in historically interesting small cities. They displayed their artifacts well and had good stuff. I couldn't see the prehistory rooms as they were closed for lack...More

The museum is ordered chronologically, with the exception of the major finds, which are displayed on the top floor. Upon entering one is given a leaflet with information as well as the most important displays in each room. From the very early period there are...More

We spent about an hour here just wandering through the rooms. It's free for EU citizens and has some really gorgeous displays. Not over-crowded and packed full like other museums.

We visited the museum one day during our four day visit to Seville. We found the exhibitions to be first class and the extent of it is quite astounding. We really enjoyed the fact that the summaries are also in English as well as Spanish....More
