Museums in Zaragoza
Museo del Foro de Caesaraugusta
(12)
This museum is located in the Plaza de la Catedral de la Seo, across the square from the Basilica del Pilar, so it's hard to miss. This museum is part of the Roman route that runs through Zaragoza, together with the Public Baths Museum, the River Port Museum, and the Theatre Museum. Admission is €2.50, but you can buy a joint ticket for the four museums for €7 (€5 if you are students). You're allowed to take pictures inside, though not using flash. The museum has three floors, although the ground floor has nothing but the reception. Upstairs, you can see the remains of the ancient Roman forum and the market. On the second floor, models show what life was like in the forum, and there are some windows showing ancient remains, like pottery and pieces of statues. Here you can also enjoy a film that runs for about 10 minutes, showing the arrival of Romans in the city. Definitely worth a visit.

Centro de Historias de Zaragoza
(8)
The History Center in a curious place due to its location in the former convent of San Agustin, where concerts and many different activities are often held in the building's atrium. These activities range from a flea market to fashion shows. Furthermore, inside there are different kinds of permanent exhibitions about the city of Zaragoza. With its spacious interior, you may find several exhibitions at the same time. There is also a space dedicated to urban art, and a cafe where you can eat. I recommend this interesting center located in the historic heart of this interesting city.

Museo Pablo Gargallo
(7)
Pablo Gargallo Museum is a must if you visit Zaragoza (Aragon, Spain). As the name suggests, it is dedicated to the sculptor Pablo Gargallo. The works of this artist are strikingly beautiful, showcasing the power of negative space, and seeming to speak from the voids that are not filled by metal or stone. Located in the Plaza de San Felipe in the historic centre of the city, it is a magnificent setting to showcase Gargallo's works. On the ground floor you'll find reception and the permanent collection (Gargallo's formative years, public sculptures and commissions). Upstairs is the audiovisual room, where an interesting 15-minute documentary about his life is shown, and above that, on the 2nd floor, you can see an explanation of the process of casting a sculpture. On the 3rd floor are sculptures from 1904 to 1934 from the permanent collection and a small adjoining room with an audiovisual display about the history of the building that you shouldn't miss. The 4th floor holds documentation, the 5th has the most creative sculptures of the permanent collection, the 6th a library, and the 7ths cartoons, prints and drawings by Gargallo. Furthermore, there are two basements for temporary exhibitions - not only painting or sculpture, but photography, too. The general admission price is 4 € (on the first Sunday of the month admission is free). The hours are Tuesday through Saturday and holidays from 9 to 21 pm, Sundays from 9-14 pm, closed Mondays. A must. 100% recommended!

Museo del Puerto Fluvial de Caesaraugusta
(12)
The River Port section of the Caesaraugusta Museum, located in the Plaza de San Bruno, is part of the historical Roman route that runs through Zaragoza, along with the Public Baths Museum, Theatre Museum, and the Caesaraugusta Forum Museum. Admission is € 2.50 but you can buy a ticket for all four museums for € 7 (€ 5 if you are a student). You can take pictures inside, but flash photography is forbidden. Of the four museums that make up the Roman route of Zaragoza, the River Port is the smallest. Here you can only see the remains of walls, a cabinet with several amphoras, and a model of the forum. The most interesting part of the museum is the audiovisual display, which tells the history of the port.
Museums in Calatayud
Municipium Augusta Bilbilis
(3)
These Roman ruins are located within 4 kilometers of Calatayud. They are very interesting, and actually still in progress. If you like archeology, do not hesitate to visit them! Admission is free. There are different signs placed among them to show what had been found in the ruins. It is also worth it to visit the Museum of Calatayud, where you can see objects found in Bílbilis: You will see Coins, mosaics, paintings, ceramics ... I called the date "before Huérmeda" still many miles on a road very narrow and full of curves in which only two cars could fit at once. Of course, the panoramic was very lovely but quite dangerous. Also the people that we met in the neighborhoods of Terrer, Ateca, Castejón Firearms (where we had the cottage) were very welcoming Calatayud. Being totally lost in this narrow road, not knowing if we had to go forward or back, alone, we meet at last! With a car that stopped to explain where we were the ruins. A very nice man who even invited us to approach the next village to offer a cup of broth. We are used to living every man for himself, in big cities, always running, so a detail as simple as a broth, let "disrupted" all morning. Thank you!!
