Expert review of Archaeological Museum

Archaeological museum in a lovely park setting.

The Archaeological Museum is one of two museums at the far end of Maria Luisa Parque, in a grand, but not very attractive, Neo-Renaissance style building designed for the 1929 exhibition. The exhibits range across most of Seville's history, although the main focus is on the Romans, with many objects from the nearby Roman town of Italica, including statues of the emperors Hadrian and Trajan, as well as a gorgeous third century BC mosaic from Ecija. The oldest and most mysterious exhibit has to be the Carambolo Treasure, consisting of 21 pieces of gold jewellery dated to the sixthth century BC.

Price advice: 

Entrance is 1.50 euros, EU citizens free.
