Museum of Archaeology

The exhibition area comprises six halls and four courtyards on the ground floor where the Prehistory, Protohistory, Roman and Visigothic collections are located. Two more halls and a gallery constitute the upper floor where the medieval collection of mainly Arabic artifacts can be seen. The Museum of Archaeology (Museo Arqueológico) features treasures from Cordoba’s rich cultural heritage, including prehistoric crafts, Roman statues and mosaics, as well as artifacts of Roman, Iberian, and Visigothic origin. The museum’s upper floor is devoted to Moorish culture and history. One of the most impressive exhibits is a bronze deer statue which was found during excavation of the former palace city of Medina Azahara. The remains of a Roman theater, only discovered in 1994, happened to be integrated in the museum building. At the moment the remains can be seen as part of the museum.
