Overview

The history of the General Military Academy, from its foundation in 1882 to the present day, is traced through the exhibitions which fill seven rooms. The collection dedicated to the "Sitios de Zaragoza" (1808-1809)is particularly impressive. Thanks to original documents and manuscripts dating from the War of Independence, the heroic defence of the city in the face of the Napoleonic siege is explained. A new museum dedicated to the siege is being set up in the old house which belonged to General Palafox, often known as "The Defender of the City". Visits are guided and must be in groups. Admission is free.
