Very interesting...great contrasts...since prehistory...Rome...ethnography,...sacred art...el Greco! ... He looked... Picasso... Sempere. And a Muslim Cistern that has worked until the first decades of the 20th century I keep the collection of stelae...!

I loved the exhibition. But what I liked the most was getting lost in its rooms, which are divided into connected buildings. The museum itself is part of the experience. I prefer the works of Miró and El Greco and the archaeological exhibition.

MARIA ELENA Bellota 1 year ago

Beautiful, from the building itself, as what it houses. The spectacular cistern. Thanks to Isabel the Catholic, the cistern is still preserved, since she allowed the building to be built on the condition that the cistern be left so that the town could collect the water through a window. The beautiful painting of El Greco. I recommend the visit 100 for 100

It is very interesting and the collection is small and quick to see, although it is worth going just to see the cistern.

Free admission museum located in one of the palaces of the old town of Cáceres. It has different exhibitions with different prehistoric and Roman objects and even regional costumes from Cáceres. You can go down below where there is a beautiful Arab water cistern. It also has temporary art exhibitions and others. Totally recommended.

A wonderful place with a lot of history! Apart from visiting the museum, I recommend doing a tourist route around the old town! There are some considerable slopes between some places, but it is worth it, we went with a guide that you can request in the main square of Cáceres

Good historic museum that should be visited to understand the history of Cáceres. A must see if you have the time.


Museum of Cáceres, Archaeological and Ethnological. A true marvel. Perfect treatment by employees. Free entry for Spaniards, you must show your ID. The SPECTACULAR cistern. Rooms with Prehistory, Rome and an exhibition of Visigothic art. Annex is the area of ​​Fine Arts that I also think is worth visiting.

It's free and it's in the old part of the city, so a visit is a must. They have very interesting things. To highlight the cistern, which is preserved in very good condition.

Joachim Nuyttens 1 year ago

Museu muito bom com renda gratuita. A maioria das informações está em espanhol, mas você pode obter um pequeno livreto com informações em inglês e francês (apenas um resumo básico, não as traduções completas). Grande parte da coleção está na Idade da Pedra e Bronze e em coisas como agricultura espanhola, roupas, adoração. Esse não foi o nosso principal interesse por nossa visita a Caceres, mas certamente vale a pena para um passeio tranquilo pelo museu.

With free access, it contains interesting archaeological remains from different periods in the history of Extremadura, and the building also has a beautiful cistern.

The Cáceres Museum is housed in two historic buildings in the historic city center of Cáceres, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Casa de las Veletas has archaeological and ethnographic sections; the building has a beautiful square patio with eight Tuscan columns, redesigned by Don Jorge de Cáceres y Quiñones, the fine art collection can be seen in Casa de los Caballos, It was a stable that became a residence until it was converted into a museum; it was renovated and opened to the public in 1992. The museum has a rich collection of medieval collections. The chronological development of the archaeological exhibition runs from the late Paleolithic to the early Middle Ages. The tour begins in the hall with a large white marble sculpture representing the androgynous elves (benevolent nature) from the Roman colony "Norba Caesarina", which originated in what is now the city of Cáceres. There are also various items from the Paleolithic Age and antiquities excavated from various megalithic tombs, the most representative iron items of the Bronze and Bronze Ages, paintings in the collection and underground cisterns are also highlights that cannot be missed.

The museum contains valuable pieces of archeology from different historical moments, but without a doubt its jewel in the Crown is the cistern that it has on the ground floor of the house, of Islamic origin. Its horseshoe columns are based on the remains of Roman and Visigothic columns that were used in its construction. @gema.carr

A WONDERFUL experience. It is a luxury for Cáceres to have such a beautiful museum. Complete,!!! Each object with its respective description, particular themes, timeline, ...in addition to the material that is exposed, the form, the didactic and the good taste have left me pleasantly surprised. I went Friday and came back on Saturday. The personnel is very friendly .

O museu em si é lindo e interessante, localizado em um edifício histórico. A entrada é gratuita. Mas quase não há sinais em inglês - um problema constante na Espanha. Estaríamos dispostos a ajudar se a autoridade gerente entraria em contato conosco.

Graham Till 1 year ago

Eu fiquei muito impressionado. Não é um grande edifício, mas uma extensa coleção de tesouros locais. De machados de pederneira e broches da idade do bronze a teares e arados, instrumentos musicais, figurinos tradicionais e uma loja de adega/água totalmente intacta construída pelos pântanos de mais de 900 anos atrás. Nenhuma infinidade de pinturas religiosas/reais/aristocráticas (teve o suficiente das pessoas no Prado na semana passada). Tudo fazia parte da vida das pessoas reais, que é para mim o que um museu deveria refletir. Não perca.

I really liked this museum, especially the archaeological section with the warrior stelae. In the gallery I was surprised to find a Greco. The cistern is curious.

Museums are not just the pieces or who created them. Museums are the soul of those who maintain them, those who preserve them, those who care for them and show them with care, respect and rigor, adapting to the public and circumstances. A visit with a group of creatures on International Museum Day served to get to know the soul of what is guarded there and of those who produced such a cluster of wonders, but also the soul of those who show it. A wonderful welcome and reception by Cristina, the Museum's education officer, continued with a visit adapted to 7 creatures bringing culture, pieces and events together in a masterful way. Rooms, cistern, gardens ... and a wonderful workshop on mosaics, wax tablet and Visigothic jewels ... to end the legends of Mansaborá in the garden. A true luxury. Thank you Cristina for your accessibility, welcome, good work and rigor. Many thanks to those who keep the Museum alive. A highly recommended visit to tourists, visitors and schoolchildren who still hesitate to enter places like this very safe in this time of COVID. A beautiful welcome and a security that we already perceive with Cristina in Maltravieso and with Susi in Cáceres el viejo. We will be back.

Great museum of History, culture, art, traditions, customs, religiosity, anthropology, .... of the province of Cáceres. Friendliness and professionalism of its employees. Do not miss it.

Hello, museum that reviews and collects the history of man, with the findings made in the province of Cáceres. The place is very good and stands out above all the cistern that is in the museum for the water supply. Admission is free for the inhabitants of the European Economic Community, a luxury and it is worth noting the friendliness of the staff. It doesn't take long to see, unless you stop to read through all the murals, which takes time. It has very cool gardens. Very interesting, you cannot miss it, especially for the Aljibe !!!!! All the best!!!!!

Miguel Simoes 2 years ago

Very interesting museum covering several areas. History, customs and ethnography and fine arts. From Roman civilization, through Arab civilization to rural customs and religious traditions, artefacts and handicrafts, crafts and traditional costumes, jewelry and furniture ending with the fine arts including Miro and Picasso. Very poorly lit sections, namely in the aljibe and typical costumes section, making it impossible to see details and colors. Free on Sundays for EU citizens. recommended

Jason Perce 2 years ago

Que grande museu cobrindo muita história local e espanhola. Começando em cerca de 3000 aC, você passa por artefatos de diferentes épocas em caceres e em geral a Espanha (através de tempos romanos, visigotos e montes, até o século XX). O edifício também é uma grande parte da exposição, incluindo uma cisterna sob o prédio. A seção de multa é de obras de Picasso e Miro, o que é muito impressionante para a taxa de entrada de 1.20 euros (ou gratuita para cidadãos da UE!) Informações detalhadas são em espanhol, mas mais conciso em inglês.

I liked and was even pleasantly surprised by the museum's approach: to visit it "through history." Also discover in such good condition, tools and tools that those of us who are already a certain age knew how they worked; and that they vaguely existed in our minds; some of them we met "broken up" .... "Manirrotos" ... Finally, highlight, YES .... The Arab cistern in such good condition, I think there is only another comparable one in Europe (Istanbul ...); Protect those jewels, please, and enjoy them ....

Beautiful the Museum of Cáceres: This lot that now occupy the Palace of the Veletas and the House of the Horses was previously destined to Arab Alcazaba. Proof of this is its cistern of the eleventh-twelfth centuries. The rest of what can currently be seen in the building is the work of the fifteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The Cáceres Museum contains a collection that ranges from Prehistory to the Visigoth period, another from Ethnography, in addition to the Hispanic-Arabian cistern and the Fine Arts collection with works from the Museo Del Prado

The museum is one of the few that covers all of history, from prehistory to modern history. You can also see the only Andalusian-style cistern in operation in Europe. Undoubtedly it is a site that you cannot miss if you visit Cáceres and more considering that the entrance is free.

If you visit the spectacular city of Cáceres, you cannot miss its Provincial Museum, located in the old part of the city, occupying two historical buildings: La Casa de las Veletas and Casa de los Caballos. The Casa de las Veletas occupies the site where the old Almohad fortress stood, of which only the cistern remains, whose floor plan is irregular, approximately fifteen meters long and ten wide, sixteen horseshoe arches supported by twelve columns , some of Roman origin, forming the five vaulted naves of which the construction consists. The interior is organized around a beautiful square patio built in 1600, belonging to the first construction of Don Lorenzo de Ulloa y Torres. In the 18th century the house was renovated by Don Jorge de Cáceres y Quiñones, from which time the gargoyles, enameled ceramic finishes and the large shields on the main façade date. A must-see that will reveal part of the history of the province of Cáceres and will allow you above all to relive live the historical past of the city through dialogue with the stones of its cistern, a mystical and magical place that never ceases to amaze me every time I visit.

A museum with a high CP value, the ticket is only €1.2~ Oh my god! Only €1.2, I thought I heard it wrong at first. Mainly because of its rich collection, from ancient Rome to modern works. The staff are all very nice, kindly guiding the route and prompting.

The largest preserved cistern in Europe after that of Istanbul is hidden under the museum. In the museum there is a separate exhibition for paintings. A review of the history and traditions of Cáceres and its province. Recommendable.

Awesome museum. Free admission on Sundays.

Small but interesting museum with something for everyone. Art, local life, archaeology, an original Arab water store, a collection of theatrical costumes. Could maybe do better with a cafe and shop but to see a painting of Christ by El Greco in a beautiful mediaeval setting was breathtaking. A small but very well curated museum.

To not lose! I was frankly amazed at the quantity and quality of the pieces displayed throughout the different rooms, from the Palaeolithic to Roman times. The cistern was the icing on the cake for me.
