Archaeological Museum

Archaeological Museum (41)

This Renaissance pavilion, built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, is the current home of the Archaeological Museum of Seville. Located within the Parque de María Luisa, it was designed by Aníbal González, who completed it in 1915.

The museum has three storeys and is divided into many different rooms, where you can find objects that date from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages. A visit here will help you better understand the history of Seville, and the region in general. We suggest following the museum’s own itinerary for viewing the exhibits, starting with the Lower Paleolithic, to the Roman Empire, and ending in the Middle Ages, which contains Arab and Mudejar relics. You can easily see the whole museum in two hours without rushing.

During your visit, you may come across the Tartessian treasure of Carambolo, a set of jewels from the 6th century B.C., discovered near Seville in 1958. Additionally, among all the objects remaining from Roman times, the sculptures of the Andalusian emperors Trajan and Hadrian are particularly noteworthy, as is the mosaic from Écija dating from the 3rd century B.C.

The museum houses more than 60 000 pieces, including its own collection and those on loan. There is a library and an archive, in addition to a restoration workshop. It’s a living museum, with a wide array of activities and educational programmes.
