over 8 million pages of archives detailing the explorations of new India or should we say America's. imagine the wealth hidden in here. if someone could just make a movie of every bits and parts of this. wow. also come at night when there isn't much people. calm and beautiful. very recommended to go in or just to pass by and enjoy the raw beauty.
I went in April. Not much to see. The only documents they had on display was the Treaty of Tordesillas, and a document that translated Indian languages into Spanish, and then there was 1 more.l, can't. Remember what it was. And then there was a cannon on display. A spanish ship was leaving I think Cuba to go back to Spain but had crashed into the Florida Keys and sank and that was the cannon they had. But that's it nothing else.
Could have been a very interesting museum, given its importance for the history of Sevilla and Spain, unfortunately it is quite empty and everything is in Spanish. Still the building is pretty, and empty compared to the Alcazar.
I almost passed right by this museum because I didn’t realize what it was. It’s definitely worth checking out the archives and the various exhibits inside! Almost everything was presented in both English and Spanish which was great. The architecture is stunning, too!
A good place to visit especially for its audiovisual presentation and maybe when it rains! Probably better from the outside though
