This museum has an amazing archeological collection, especially ancient artefacts and jewellery, but so much more. The upper floors are dedicated to paintings, more recent on this occasion than the archeological floor. Allow 2-3 hours to take everything in or go on two different days....More

Archaeological floor was fascinating, and the art we got to see was interesting. We did not get to see some of it because they are serious about having the place cleared out before closing time. We should have had about ten more minutes before close,...More

Very interesting and well organised museum of Cádiz history. Very central location. Cádiz is one of the oldest cities in Europe and the history is very interesting from the times of phoenicians. Also attractive tempory exhibitions, including modern art.

Small but very interesting with many artifacts going back 3000 years. No charge for EU nationals so go before Brexit!!

Its a small museum which could be made more inviting if there were more English explanations. it is a good place to spend the morning.I would definitely go again

Free to enter, this is well worth a visit. Its archeology sections demonstrate the influences of the various civilisations who were drawn to Cadiz by its unique geography - some fascinating and well-displayed items. The art is worth a visit but, compared to other cities'...More

As far as I can recall there are steps up to the entrance of the building, I don't think that there was a ramp, on entering the building there was a small entrance area with more steps, I don't recall seeing a lift either... More
