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.

Best with a tour of Italicum

Lots of sculptures from different eras. Unfortunately, one whole floor was closed for "technical reasons". An audioguide should be made.

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

We failed to get into the museum as it was closed on a Saturday afternoon along with all the parks and other nearby museums. This was despite it being advertised as open

Took a nice walk to the museum on a Saturday and it was not as busy as we thought it would be. In fact, we were maybe the only three people in the whole place besides the staff. It is a lovely building with nice big rooms holding Roman antiquities uncovered during Seville's long history. Pieces from nearby Italica are... More

The museum has an amazing collection of Roman sculptures and mosaics, collected from local sites including Italica. The museum is €1.50 or free to EU citizens - well worth visiting.

Loads of Roman artifacts on display here. Free on Tuesday to EU residence and you will need your passport to get in free. Small entrance fee all other days. Most people just take pictures of the building from the outside. Located in the Plaza de America in the Parque Maria Luisa.
