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 others have highlighhted, this is an excellent museum, especially the superb Phoenician collection. However, the explanatory labels for the objects are (naturally) only in Spanish. There is though a free leaflet which you can get on entering the museum. This is in several other...More

This is a typical Spanish provincial museum. Not very large nor very well kept. But since the history of Cádiz is so interesting it's worth a visit for an hour or so. We only saw the ground floor. Interesting pieces from Phoenician and Roman times....More

Well laid out and captioned exhibits, most in English as well as Spanish. A good insight into the past of this ancient port and its value to the area across the millennia.
