Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

“One of the Best Archaeological Museums in Spain”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

When I visit Seville, I always enjoy visiting this museum because there is so very much to see. The Roman remains are among the best in Spain. There are beautiful Roman statues and mosaic floors. They have cabinets where the ashes of Roman ancestors were placed. This museum is a wonderful learning resource and one can learn much of Roman life and its culture.

“Great smaller museum”
Reviewed 12 March 2011

You can walk to this museum from the Cathedral through a lovely park. The museum has artifacts from the prehistoric period through the Roman period. Everything is displayed beautifully! The Roman artifacts from Italica occupy almost the entire main floor. Statues and huge mosaics are placed in rooms suggesting their original locations. We were surprised at what a fine museum this is!!
