This museum is well-presented. It is frustrating that the placards and labels are not in English, but the English brochure they give you at the entrance is clear, detailed, and well-written and it is not to hard to identify the objects discussed. A fun thing for the kids is to load up the Google translate app and have them use... 更多
It is the otherside of the Cathedral and you may have to ask for directions from inside the cathedral or the bell tower as it is not signposted at all. There are some interesting religious artifacts here and some dazzling glittering Altar pieces on show. There is also a quantity of church artwork. There are clean public toilets on site.... 更多
Not impressed here at all. I was really hoping to see some interesting and historic artefacts on my visit however I was very disappointed. I found the staff unhelpful and when we toured the museum it was short on information and scarce on material in English language.
I visited the museum as I had read it had some interesting artefacts. I was surprised by the wonderful range of their exhibits, which were displayed well, with good clear information. A highlight were the sarcophagi. I only viewed the artwork briefly.
This is free for EU visitors, in common with many museums of this type in Spain. It covers the usual periods of local history, with two notable sarcophagi from the Phoenician period as the stand out items. It also features Roman remains from Cadiz, Medina Sidonia, Sancti Petri and Baelo Claudia, which are interesting. There is some good glassware and... 更多
Set in a beautiful building on the Plaza del Mina this museum has a fascinating ground floor dedicated local archaeology - well laid out and displaying may interesting exhibits.

Museum is more interesting than I expected with a couple of sarcophagus dating from 500 bce which are Phoenician influenced. Also Roman era statues, pottery and other objects from 200 bce to 400 ce. There is a bellas artes museum as well.
The large archaeology section is well laid-out, with explanations in Spanish and English. There are many artifacts from stone age onwards, including some fascinating Roman articles. There's also information about fishing in ancient times, and coinage. If you like religious art, there's a whole floor of it, and above that, modern art.
Really impressed with the collection of artworks from major Spanish artists. Murillo and others. Well presented and you can really get close to the works. Wish the descriptions would have had English subtitles as well but, hey, we ARE in Spain, after all!
