The best thing is that it is free. It doesn’t take long to see everything so it’s good if you want to spend some time in a building when it is hot outside.
There are many pieces of ruins and reeeeally old objects, you can see what people wore a long time ago and many pieces of art (also by Goya).
The building is beautiful, especially the (marble??) stairs.
Worth a visit!

A little bit away from the centre of the new town, but worth it as there are the only free works that you will find of Goya, plus many other works.
Sometimes part of the museum is closed as they change the displays, but you will see something nice and the courtyard is lovely on a sunny day - they should open a cafe there!

Well laid out and focussed on archeological findings in the local area (which was quite interesting in itself) the Romans appeared to have left quite a legacy and all the artefacts were well documented and restored with a lot of care. As much as it was interesting to see, all the information is in Spanish but I think there may have been some additional reading information in English.
Not much information on the general history of Zaragoza. The upper floor dedicated to local artists such as Goya. The staff are friendly and helpful.

In addition to the Goya works and other art, this is the place to see the mosaics, sculpture, and other objects recently excavated from Zaragoza's Roman remains.

This museum is located next to a nice little park and close to one of the main avenues of Zaragoza, not far from Plaza de Espana. the first floor is mainly archeological, consisting of ruins from the Roman era as well as some mosaic pieces. The second floor was the surprise, as there were some paintings by Goya and a couple of enormous and beautiful paintings by Spanish artists that I do not know. On one side there is a collection of Japanese woodblock prints (Ukiyoe) including some from the famous Edo to Kyoto route. Certainly worth a visit if you love art and archeology.

There is a lot of history here in the museum and it covers many centuries. Some really nice displays. Go early in the morning before it gets busy and crowded.

This museum has a good range of objects, including Roman artefacts such as mosaics. The building itself was interesting and the displays were varied and well laid out.

This museum is free, so I was eager to take a look. The first galleries offer an overview of the history of Zaragoza, with art and other artifacts on display. This was my favorite part of the museum. There is also a display of artwork by local artists, as well as a random display of Japanese art. Unfortunately, when I went the Goya exhibition was closed due to renovations; I think I would have enjoyed the museum more if this section had been open. Also, note that all text is in Spanish (and no translated leaflet is provided like there is at many of the other museums). Therefore, I would recommend the museum only if you can understand some of the language.

Okay so yes everyone loves a good museum especially if it is free. Unfortunately when I went half of the exhibits were closed. If you do go to this museum that is worth a visit and you cannot speak Spanish, download a translation app due to 3/4 of the information is only in Spanish, it is a very interesting place to visit with a rich culture and diverse display of art, archaeological discoveries and statues.
