Cultural action

One of the main goals of the Museum is to bring the institution closer to teachers and students. Our context favors quality education. In fact, the educational programme we offer covers various educational levels, establishing connections between instruction and training. From the constant dialogue with teachers, a lot of proposals emerge which make this Museum a place where the teaching-learning process takes place naturally.


Considering our public, we design an agenda of activities and events with a diversity of content for different audiences, whether they are young people, families, children or adults who visit us. We are committed to our visitors and we use all kinds of formats, from the more formal, such as lectures on history, to the more experimental, such as workshops or concerts.

Innovation, improvement and creation of new proposals and programmes is a fundamental part of our educational work. Through our projects and collaborative networks with other institutions, we work from the idea of shared creation. The action and educational resources go beyond our walls and travel to strengthen these collaborative networks.


The Museum has a library with free access, located in the Marcos Ana Public Library of Casariche. It is located on the first floor of the building and it is opened during our usual opening hours and aimed at researchers, students and the general public interested in the study of History of Art and Museums.

Our history

The Museum of Casariche is a newly created museum collection. The decision that led to its creation has a long history. From the moment the Roman mosaics were extracted from the site of El Alcaparral, there was a firm desire that they should be displayed in the town itself. This intention was in fact embodied in specific agreements that affected at least the main mosaic, the so-called “Juicio de Paris” (Judgement of Paris). Agreements were reached when it was transferred to the Instituto Andaluz del Patrimonio Histórico for restoration.

However, this popular will to enhance the heritage of the Roman Villa of El Alcaparral was shifted into a museographic project and in the construction of a new building to house the Museum Collection. This was the condition for the approval by the Ministry of Culture of the Andalusian Regional Government to the deposit of the 15 extracted mosaics. These were delivered in warehouses under its jurisdiction and, above all, of the mosaic of the so-called “Judgement of Paris”, restored and exhibited in the Archaeological Museum of Seville from 2002 until 2017, the date on which it finally returned to Casariche.

Instituted on the basis of the Order of 21 December 2015, which authorized the creation of the Museum Collection of the Roman Mosaics of Casariche “José Herrera Rodas”, Casariche, Seville. It was agreed that it would be entered in the Register of Museums of Andalusia.
The Museum is managed directly by the Casariche Town Council.

As a public institution, one of the fundamental obligations of the Museum is to inform society not only about the archaeological pieces it houses, but also about contextual information (historical, cultural, etc.) supported by different resources and programmes, as well as the use of activities adapted to the different audiences that visit us.
