Very interesting experience when visiting the museum. Try to find small room in gallery where they did animation of this place. It helps to understand original idea and value of entertainment and Emperor's power at that time.

Interesting and well worth a visit. Roman statuary gives a real impression of clothing and hair styles.

The museum is one of the best I've ever visited. In every corner you find something interesting , it's a history lesson for the young and old alike.

I'm saying average because it is quite a modest size museum. There are a few really spectacular items; others are very nice. It is worth visiting but don't expect Merida's outstanding museum or the diversity of Cadiz's museum.

Wonderful collections of Roman artifacts, sculptures, mosaics, and such. Very much worth a visit. It's educational, with good explanations of everything on exhibit. Not expensive to enter. The building is pretty too, with good views from the upper windows over the sea. Highly recommended for...More

If you're into museums you'll like wandering through the rooms of the Museu Arqueologic: there's plenty of statues, mosaics, everyday utensils and sailing devices from Roman times. My only complaint about it is that it's an old-fashioned museum; it hasn't changed much since I visited...More
