The Archeological Museum of Seville was first built between 1911 and 1919 in a Neo-Renaissance style by Anibal Gonzalez for the Ibero-American exposition of 1929. The museum has called the Pavillion of Fine Arts home since 1941 and exhibits materials dating back from the prehistoric and Roman era, as well as Arabic Art.
A display of particular interest is the reproduction of the Tesoro del Carambolo (the original Carambolo Treasure is stored in a bank safe of the Banco de Santander on Tetuan Street for security purposes, or so they say). The Roman artifacts from Italica occupy almost the entire main floor. In addition, statues and huge mosaics are placed in rooms suggesting their original locations.
Situated in the Plaza de America, the museum is open Tuesdays from 3:00pm to 8:00pm, Wednesday through Saturday from 9:00am to 8:00pm and on Sunday from 9:00am to 2:00pm. Admission is 1.50 EUR for adults, while European Citizens are free. For more information, contact 954 23 24 01.
