A fascinating history of the Camino set out over three floors. The first floor gives an exploration of the essence Pilgrimage in relation to all faiths and cultures. There is a combination of photos, videos, information panels and artefacts that is not overwhelming in detail,...More

From outside the tinted doors can give impression its closed - when it is not. Do not plan for visit being longer than an hour. The entry staff seem a bit over zealous but perhaps better in busier times

Small price for a small museum on the origin of pilgrimages in the world, it's meaning, the link to Saint James patron of pilgrims and a bit about the city of Santiago. I liked that you can spend 1-2 hours and you've enjoy a quick...More

New and modern exhibits. Great to learn more about the Pilgrimage over time. The museum is well laid out with interesting information panels in English, Spanish and Galician. Information sheets at the entrance in multiple other languages. Also has a number of video presentations again...More

This is a very interesting Museum particularly if you have just finished The Camino as you will be interested in the history behind the pilgrimage. It also has good general information about Santiago de Compostela. We went on Sat afternoon when it is free.

The new Pilgrimage Museum is easy to miss, even though it is right by the main entrance to the cathedral, but seek it out as it is well worth the effort and will occupy your time and interest for lengthy period.

Despite the quality of presentation you learn nothing of the pilgrims themselves. Who were they. Why were they so motivated to undertake long, dangerous and difficult journeys. An opportunity lost. I suspect there are many like me who would like to learn about them.
