This is a small collection of artefacts representing a sample of lesser important remains. Have a peek if you happen to walk by. Don’t need to make a detour to see this.

Very, very small collection. If you buy the Merida single entrance ticket you won’t feel so bad. Wouldn’t make a special trip for this but as a part of the overall package the ticket offers it’s ok.

This is a small museum that was not real easy to find. Because the Visigothic period in Spain was so short (about 300 years) there aren't as many remains as there would be from other periods. For that reason, what is in the museum is...More

This is very much the poor relation of the Roman museum in Merida. Housed in an old church and free, it is a reasonably interesting collection of artefacts from the Visigoth period. However, it lacks any real information about what you're seeing and unless you...More

For someone particularly interested in the period I would give this a higher (4 star) rating. The collection is housed in what appears to be a deconsecrated church. There are a number of interesting gravestones and church building elements.

The Visigothic collections here await a "real " museum - in the meantime, this is a pleasant display of some beautiful stone carvings, well worth a visit. The entrance is free, and it does not take long to explore. It makes an interesting contrast to...More
