Right of the plaza in front of El Seo Cathedral there is an entryway into a courtyard with the Alma Mater museum unobtrusively located in the back corner. It's very easy to walk right by, which is probably one of the reasons it has comparatively...More

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this museum. It is laid out beautifully and everything is presented very well. We arrived an hour before closing, so we were a bit rushed. If you enjoy history and historical art, you’ll want to visit this museum.

This museum was put together very nicely. Some on the displays were in both Spanish and English. Others were in Spanish only. Great use for this historical building. Entrance fee was very reasonable. Photos are allowed without a flash.

It shows a bit the history of the city, connecting with several historical facts, from the very early start to current days. Worths the visit. Entrance costs 3 euros.

Located close to the cathedral, it offers a collection of religious dresses of the virgin, and also a collection of historic pieces from the region, combined with information about Spain's history. The entrance fee is unexpensive, I think it was like 3 €.

The staff bent over backwards to help two disabled travelers. The museum has outstanding video presentations with wonderful music and multiple projectors. Also the treasures are many and spectacular. Really worth a visit.
