This is a very small museum. It was very inexpensive to get in. Not a lot to see but for the price glad we stopped in.

If you read Spanish, this museum offers a fabulous introduction to the Visigothic history of Spain. I knew little of the Visigoths upon entering. Now I can pursue the threads I picked up here. The exposition is good but not very impressive: sarcophagi, columns, artifacts... but the explanations are well worth the entry fee. I asked the attendants about efforts... More

A break from some of the more lavish monuments - a breath of fresh air in that regard. A peaceful place, with time to contemplate. Interesting artefacts, though information is only in Spanish. Access to the tower was an unexpected bonus - wonderful views. Just 1 euro entry fee in total.

This well worth a visit if you can find the museum. There are several signs in the area, but not quite enough to actually guide you there. Even with a map we found it difficult. We had to ask several locals and most of them did seem to know how to get there. Once there however, it was worth it.

The museum is small, and the exhibits not terribly interesting, and labelled only in Spanish. The building itself, with many remaining wall paintings is an absolute gem, though, and a delight to visit. After 5pm it is also free, though there is only a small charge at other times. It is a place just to stand and absorb the atmosphere,... More

The museum is full of very interesting artefacts from the Visigoths who took power after the decline of Rome. The church it is housed in a stunningly painted and one of the most beautiful interiors in Toledo. Well worth the euro entry.

You must go outside of the usual tourist paths. Perhaps You can find this for the history of Spain so important exhibition of Visigothic art and history. It will be able for you to understand the developmant of this country after the defeat of the Roman Empire.

The museum will only appeal to those interested in Toledo's Visigothic past but the church inside is a must-see--one of the great examples of mudejar art in Toledo. It was built by Moorish architects who had remained in the territories reconquered by the Christians and began to build churches and synagogues for their new rulers except they did it their... More
