Roman Theatre Museum, Cartagena

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.

  • Possible visits to Cartagena is one of the best. This care and protected but the smell cat feces is unbearable in some parts of the site. Inside the Museum very well.

  • One of the many monuments of the city. Spectacular. Very well preserved. The interior Museum rather scarce and too minimalist design, but if you like the history don't miss this theatre.
