Un museo que sorprende tras su remodelación. Una visita obligada para entender la historia de la ciudad desde sus origenes y la riqueza de nuestra cultura. Precio especial para jerezanos: 1-2 euros. Sería muy interesante pensar en rutas a pie por el Casco histórico para conocer de primera mano el trazado original de la ciudad amurallada.
Very nice exibits and good information
Not far from the cathedral beyond the Domeq bodegas you'll find a square with small statues of Cervantes and Shakespeare. Behind this is the museum. Entrance for eu citizens is very cheap. Less than 2€. The building is air conditioned, has 3 floors of exhibits. Included is an audio tour. The in-room videos play in Spanish or English. We spent over 2 hours here. A hidden gem. There's also a small collections of coins through the ages. It's a good place to start your visit to Jerez as it describes how it is laid out, the Alcázar, the walls and churches. During an extension to the museum they found more archeology. A small area of the dig is on view.
Excellent, well organized museum. Though small but nice exhibits. You can see their effort.
The Archaeological Museum at Jerez de la Frontera has recently been refurbished and renovated and in quality and type of display now rivals any provincial museum in Andalucia. There is only one drawback, most of the information is in Spanish although free audio handsets are available in a number of languages. The building that houses the museum the Old City Hall in Plaza del Mercado, was itself declared a building of Cultural Interest in 1962. The displays take you from deep prehistory through to the modern age.
