Fantastic museum, but we didn't see any English translations near any of the artifacts. The museum did offer audio devices (for a fee) to use while walking through the museum. The tapestries had some of the brightest colors we have ever seen in ancient tapestries....More

Just to see these works of art is a unique experience. The beauty of the statuaries and carpets is overwhelming!It seems like a treasure hunt to move from level to level in the museum and discovering each new room. No pictures please!!!

The museum is a refreshing look at the Cathedral over time. Some of the artwork is absolutely stunning. It is a good way for the holdings of the Cathedral, which have accumulated over time, to be seen and appreciated again centuries after they were created....More

This looks like a great museum but unless you know Spanish, you won't be able to read anything in this museum. Unlike other world class museums, this museum offered no other languages in terms of literature, displays and audio tours. When we inquired at the...More
