Although a bit further away than other attractions it is located in a very pleasant area of the town and it is certainly worth the effort to get there.
Nothing really striking but a good testimonial of the history of Zaragoza. The main attractions are the Roman section and the Goya exhibition. It's a free entry museum and it is amazing to see that they also have little security (we didn't see any at all) and you can touch (or damage!) all the works of art without any kind of restraint. It is also a pity that the museum seems to be more for the domestic market: there is very little explanation in English and also the staff only speaks Spanish.

The Museo de Zaragoza is located at Plaza de los Sitios, 6. This is the best fine arts museum in Zaragoza. The building was built in 1908 for the Hispano-Francesa Exhibition as the Pavilion of the Arts, and the architects were Ricardo Magdalena and Julio Bravo. The façade shows the Allegories dedicated to the Arts, Commerce and Industry. There are also medallions that represent the artists of that era. The museum has an archaeological section that has exhibits dating from Prehistoric times to the Moorish times. The Fine Arts section has collections of painting and sculptures, ceramics, and stamps that cover the period from Roman times to art of the 20th century. The patio is quite large and has many copies of famous Roman sculptures. There are several very good Roman mosaics that are hung on the walls of the museum. There is a very good reconstruction of a room of Villa Fortunatus from Calle Añon. There are also some Japanese prints that are very good. In 1962 this museum was declared a Historic-Artistic Monument.

A lovely museum in a beautiful building. A number of early paintings and some gorgeous doorways on display around the cloister. Well worth a visit and only a 10 minute walk from the main square

We arrived here at opening time and had the whole place to ourselves. The mosaics, taken from various locations in the city are the best we have seen outside Rome. The rest of the museum is very good too
