Andalucía’s most important archaeological collection, housed in a pavilion in Maria Luisa Park, charts everything from the Neolithic age, through the Roman occupation to the time of the Moors. The stand-outs are a statuette of Astarte-Tanit, a Phoenician fertility goddess who held the Mediterranean in thrall around the 8th-century BC, and the Carambolo Treasures, a stunning hoard of gold jewelry from the 6th century which shows clear Oriental influence--and may leave you musing about the people who lived in Andalucía 1500 years ago. Closed on Mondays.

First I should mention that we missed out on viewing the Treasury that is apparently tucked away on an upper floor during renovations. Yet what we saw ,the prehistoric and Roman era sections were fascinating,well lit,labeled and showcased. The building itself is grand,dating from the 1929 Universal Exhibition. Many of the artifacts shown come from the Italica site near Sevilla.... More

Housed in one of the old "pavillions" this was a great add in in this section of the park. In fact there is another museum opposite. OK so "old stuff" might not be for you but its free to UK citizens to visit and also a chance to grab some welcome shade. The exhibits are thoughtfully laid out and are... More

This museum splits the Plaza de Americas with another museum. You can easily do both in a couple of hours. The fee is minimal and the plaza is a nice place to visit anyway. I believe the fee was only 1.50 which reflects the size and significance of the collection. It gave me a chance to get out of the... More

I was lucky...the day I visited was a free entry day. There are some great Roman exhibits to view but unless you have good Spanish language skills then there is very little here in English for you to read or understand.

The Seville archeological museum has been modernised and has a wonderful collection of artefacts from prehistory to the middle ages, although Roman finds are predominant. The finds are clearly labelled in Spanish and English with interesting hostorical information displayed on the walls of each hall. Fascinating museum and well worth a visit not only for the museum itself but also... More

Just opposite the Museum of Popular Arts and Customs (also highly recommended and also free) in beautiful Maria Luisa Park, this museum gives a good insight into Seville's past, particularly under the Romans. Combine it with a stroll in the park and look at the Plaza de Espana - with lunch, you can spend a whole day in this part... More

Its collection of remains - mostly large-scale monuments and stonework - from the Roman city of Italica is amazing - really. Definitely worth around 90 minutes of your time and free if you can prove EU citizenship (passport or driving licence0
