Review Highlights
Great marble and mosaic displays, not crowded and free entry.

Great refuge if its wet or too hot, clearly set out with most galleries having English explanations.

Overview

Andalucía’s most important archaeological collection, housed in a pavilion in Maria Luisa Park, charts everything from the Neolithic age, through the Roman occupation to the time of the Moors. The stand-outs are a statuette of Astarte-Tanit, a Phoenician fertility goddess who held the Mediterranean in thrall around the 8th-century BC, and the Carambolo Treasures, a stunning hoard of gold jewelry from the 6th century which shows clear Oriental influence--and may leave you musing about the people who lived in Andalucía 1500 years ago. Closed on Mondays.

This museum contains archaeological remains found in the region of Andalusia. The bulk of the collection was excavated from several ancient Roman towns, in particular from Italica, located about 9 kilometres north of Seville. Between the 2nd century BC and the 5th century AD Italica...More

At the end of the Parque Maria Luisa there is this beautiful building with the museum inside. Very nice collection, well presented. More explanation in English is recommendable for those visitors who can't read Spanish.

When we were there we were virtually on our own. It doesn't appear to be popular, which is a pity as it is well set out. The gardens are beautiful.

The museum's very inexpensive (1.50 for non-EU-citizens), yet very big. They have some nice artifacts and the building itself is impressive, too. The park surrounding it is absolutely beautiful and a must-do, so you might as well check out the museum.

I enjoyed a visit to this museum, pretty inexpensive to enter and well laid out. It tracks human occupation thru the ages. If you are into archaeology, well worth the trek.

This excellent museum reflects the presence and influence of the succession of invaders to Spain. Commencing with the Phoenicians, individual rooms are allocated to the Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Moors and Visigoths. The wealth of artefacts is outstanding. The museum is set in attractive gardens that...More
