Roman Theatre Museum, Cartagena

(4.5/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
A grand, finely preserved relic of Spain’s ancient history under the Roman Empire, Roman Theatre Museum helps you envision a huge crowd of toga-clad citizens enjoying a performance. At one time, the theater could seat about 7,000, and today its museum displays numerous artifacts excavated on site. Pause to admire the Corinthian columns and sculptures on display before following the passage into the theater itself. Make sure you visit the temporary exhibition room--the space features natural light and high ceilings that can accommodate interesting large displays.

  • This was the last place we visited on a tour, it was a hot day and be careful when you get in the ruins it's very hot, so take a hat with you. It's all beautifully preserved and well worth a visit it'...  more »
  • A fascinating place. Unfortunately there was extremely sparse information in English and there was none or lack of guards. No handrail extension at stairs. Not recommended for walking-impaired. The staff was nice and very accommodating.
