Lovely BC pieces but the French 2 pages leaflet only tells you what the room is about and it's all in Spanish on site (which os fair but no other language at all) . The painting floor was closed when I went

We'd seen lots of great reviews so toddled along. Sadly, the Fine Arts section was closed for some mysterious reason. The archaeological bits we didn't find to be well explained or linked together.

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.

A very interesting museum spread over 3 floors. Very spacious. Would have liked a bit more of the information to be written in English.

This is a very diverse museum with archeological historical artefacts of Cadiz history and contemporary “art” (art in its loosest sense). It’s a pleasant way to spend an afternoon in an airy and architecturally interesting building out of the heat of Cadiz. It’s free to...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
