Experiencia fantástica: Very nicely done, not just the museum pieces, but the architecture as well. This is free for peregrinos, with free bag check-in (you will need a one euro piece, which you get back). A great way to learn about the history of the various Caminos, and chaconne music.

Experiencia fantástica: Lovely museum stall telling the story of the pilgrimage. It has many models and old objects so it is perfect to visit with children and they will not get bored. On the top floor there is a glass window with beautiful views of the clock tower.

Experiencia fantástica: I loved the museum and the visit told what they did to us seemed spectacular both in content and in the way of telling it. Two guides who love their work and know how to transmit it. It's so worth it

Experiencia fantástica: Museum that the pilgrim cannot miss. Admission was free, although prices were indicated at the door (€2-3). The exhibition is worthwhile as it explains and illustrates the entire evolution of the path and the pilgrim. There are three floors but the visit is not long at any time. Recommended visit if you are in Santiago.

Experiencia fantástica: A spectacular architectural work by Manuel Gallego. Essential visit in Santiago. A pity that the window blinds hide such beautiful views. The exhibition quite interesting too. (Photos protected by copyright, TGF)

Experiencia fantástica: The Museum of Pilgrimages, located next to the Compostela Cathedral, is an interesting place to visit before entering the world of the cathedral and its artistic heritage, as it allows to know in depth the history behind this centennial pilgrimage route, from the concept of pilgrimage in different cultures throughout the world, the antecedents of the discovery of the relics of the Apostle and the diversification of iconographic representations, to the architectural evolution of the cathedral and the urban development of the city. Highly recommended.

Experiencia fantástica: It is worth visiting. There are 4 floors, at the moment the covi is free to enter. If you are a pilgrim you will understand much better the meaning of the Camino de Santiago.

Experiencia fantástica: A very interesting museum. Very beautiful objects are presented. The point of view is scientific: historical, anthropological without any bigotry. Perfect for visitors who do not come on a pilgrimage but are interested in the history of this one and the city. Few visitors compared to the cathedral. The museography is modern and it's free!

Experiencia fantástica: A great museum, very complete and inexpensive. It is worth visiting its rooms to understand the Jacobean phenomenon, the history of Santiago and the cathedral, and admire some unique pieces that it guards. Very good distribution of spaces, well signposted, accessible, well documented signs, facilities for people with mobility problems and resources for the blind. Whenever I can, I visit him again! :)

Experiencia fantástica: Platerias Square, 2 15782 Santiago de Compostela La Coruna, Spain. It is a museum of several floors, where each exhibition tells us the history of the pilgrimage, Galician customs and materials that were used in those times, there are also very beautiful pictures of history. It is an impressive museum, located in the same Plaza de Platerías, it is a good place to get to know a small part of the history of the pilgrimages to Santiago, clothes that were used, and above all a part of the exhibition is the wood carvings (Wooden Figures), are a real wonder. Since it is right next to the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, I recommend that you go to visit the museum.

Experiencia fantástica: Very interesting museum with a beautiful collection of passages left in history by pilgrims, paintings, testimonials, descriptions and much more. Entrance for pilgrims only € 1.20. Leaving the backpack in the lockers downstairs I made a stop at the beautiful photographic exhibition 1930-40.

BOURGEOIS COSTA Henri 4 years ago

Experiencia fantástica: Museum very nice, bright and presenting a modern museography. The path of St Jacques and placed in the context of pilgrimages around the world and then discussed in detail (origins, political importance, etc.). Do not miss the models upstairs showing the architectural evolution of the cathedral, or the view from the top of the building. Very nice home.

Experiencia fantástica: You have to go, see it, try to keep an open mind for the kind of art that is going to find one there and enjoy it. You can not explain in a Google review the years of history that you can find a few centimeters from your face. The color, the smell, the materials ... will teleport you to the time without a doubt.

Experiencia fantástica: An exhibition with a lot of meaning, especially for the pilgrim, a detailed explanation of the pilgrimage in different cultures and religions, the history of the Camino de Santiago and everything that led to it over the centuries. Very well prepared audiovisual material, I spent more than two hours there. On Sunday they have it free. Highly recommended.

Experiencia fantástica: One of my favorite museums that I’ve ever been to. Well worth the visit, especially for those who are interested in pilgrimages particularly the El Camino. It is a cheap fee.

Francisco Manuel 5 years ago

Experiencia fantástica: I liked it very much, mainly the archaeological remains, such as the head of a Galician-Roman warrior from Castro Lupario, Rois, Brion. It also has a torc and several Celtic bracelets, etc. The subject of pilgrimages to me no longer interests me much. They have a temporary exhibition hall.

Experiencia fantástica: Very nice building in Platerias Square and next to the cathedral. Former headquarters of the Bank of Spain. Restored and very modern interior. The contents are really valuable because of their age. There is a model of the beautiful cathedral. It has windows on the roof that show the clock tower from very original angles.

Experiencia fantástica: Fantastic museum encompassing several floors of displays with the theme of pilgrimages with an emphasis on the Camino de Santiago. This is a must-see for every pilgrim coming into Santiago, especially for the first time. Would be great for non-pilgrim tourists as well.
