This is a very interesting Museum particularly if you have just finished The Camino as you will be interested in the history behind the pilgrimage. It also has good general information about Santiago de Compostela. We went on Sat afternoon when it is free.

This modern mueum has loads of information about the Pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostella. It is beautifully laid out and has excellent displays. I would recommend any visitor to Santiago should visit this museum to understand the background of the Cathdral, the city and its history and significnace to Spain in general not only to the many pilgrims who journeyed...

The new Pilgrimage Museum is easy to miss, even though it is right by the main entrance to the cathedral, but seek it out as it is well worth the effort and will occupy your time and interest for lengthy period.

Despite the quality of presentation you learn nothing of the pilgrims themselves. Who were they. Why were they so motivated to undertake long, dangerous and difficult journeys. An opportunity lost. I suspect there are many like me who would like to learn about them.

First the positive. I really respect the way the museum presented the Camino in terms of religion/spirituality. It was not focused on the religious aspect as much as the spiritual through presenting the pilgrimage as a journey participated in by all faiths (or no faith). I spent about an hour and was the only one in the museum. The staff... More

Very interesting museum about pilgrimage and the city of Santiago de Compostela. Small, but interesting collection. If you have a valid credential you get a discount and a stamp.

What a great presentation and a very old collection of books, paintings, statues and history of the Camino. It was free for us, and that was surprising.

Clearly a lot of money had been spent on the interior. Lots of glass and sweeping pale wood staircases.The information about the pilgrimage routes was informative in a Disney way. The text printed on surfaces was hard to read because of sunlight shining on it from an immensely high glass roof. I made the mistake of leaning over and trying... More
