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.

  • Immerse yourself in the Roman period visiting this theater, although much of it is restored, trying to preserve the style of the time, there are still remnants of what was then. Good experience.

  • Don't you miss it, you won't regret it. That if you hire an official tourist guide, you'll enjoy!

  • Explanations clear and entertaining of the theater in their different phases of the history, combining audiovisual with elements restored original. The restoration very original of the hand of Moneo.
