We went there on a Saturday and the entrance was free of charge. The archaeological exposition was impressive and fascinating! Especially the Phoenicians chamber with the 2 giant sarcophagus and lots of rare figures and jewellery! Loved it!

My first ever place when coming to Cadiz. Once a week they have free entrance and additionally they provide a discount for students. In this museum you can see the history of Cadiz (Gadix) and get the idea about how it all evolved.

Small size but perfectly presented. Free for Europeans (always a plus). Fabulous collection of Zurbarans

Refurbished over the last few years Cadiz museum is now a modern city museum. Not unnaturally the emphasis is on the Phoenician period.

A small museum but has some interesting exhibits from ancient Cádiz. The art gallery has some interesting Spanish paintings. If you want to add some history to your list this is worthwhile.

A fairly good time, saw some interesting roman artifacts, coins.,Phoenician artifacts and architecture. At the entrance, just say you are from Germany, they don't check Id's or anything, saves you money.

The ground floor of this museum has the archeological exhibit, which was very cool - it goes back to pre-historic times, through the Phoenicians (with two Phoenician sarcophagi!) and the Romans. Lots of artifacts that were interesting to look at. I was less impressed by...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
