Museums in Seville City

Seville has a number of excellent museums representing a wide range of subjects, historical periods and styles.

Bullfighting fans will enjoy the small museum at the bullring, while the Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares is devoted to a more general tradition of arts and culture. The archaeological museum covers a period dating back to Paleolithic times, while the Casa de Pilatos and Casa de la Dueñas are examples of fine stately homes. Palaces such as the Alcazar and the Palacio de Lebrija are magnificent in their opulence, while the fascinating tobacco factory which inspired the famous Carmen gypsy heroine is, today, part of the city's bustling university campus.

More contemporary offerings can be found at the Pabellon de Navegacion, a museum about oceanic voyages built for the 1992 Expo, and the Magellan centre which examines the first circumnaviagtion of the world (1519-1522), while the Pabellon de Peru from the 1929 Expo is home to the small but interesting science museum.
