We visited this impressive archeological museum, the entrance was free since the second and third floor were close due to renovations. Sadly the fine arts section was close. However the first floor is devoted to the Prehistoric period which shows all the archeological historical monuments,...More

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.

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

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.

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
