Museo del Teatro de Caesaraugusta, Zaragoza

(4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
After the sun goes down, a virtual performance is projected on the stage at Museo del Teatro de Caesaraugusta. During the daylight hours, you can take a boardwalk tour of the former theater, which once held 6,000 Roman spectators. A small educational center offers background on the discovery of the site in 1972, and the uses of the theater when the Roman Empire was at its height. The remarkably well-preserved site is thought to the greatest remnant of Roman life found in Spain.

  • See, to discover an ancient Roman theatre, the development is outstanding, a very good preservation, to do with a zaragoza card.

  • The remains of the ancient Roman Theatre. You can also visit combining it with the other three archaeological sites with the combined ticket of seven euros to four museums. In addition to viewing the remains of the outdoor theater, there are also audiovisual panels with explanations in Spanish.

  • It is true that there are other best preserved theatres in Spain but nonetheless found me less interesting visit. You could say that the Museum is divided into two parts, the inside with fragments, models and lots of information about Caesaraugusta, the outer part are the actual ruins of the theatre. Highly recommended, I loved to walk among the remains of the Roman Theatre and thinking about everything that had to be living there.

  • Wow! They've invested a huge amount of money in excavating the ruins and building a museum next to it to tell the story. Worth a trip if you like Roman ruins. Zaragoza is not over run with tourists so it feels like a real place. There are two other Roman excavations nearby that are smaller but also very well done.
  • Worth visiting. I have never been to a Teatro before, so it was an amazing experience.
  • This is by far the best of the 4 places on the Caesaraugusta trail (but since it only costs a little more to see the other three, I would recommend getting the full ticket). It has a great 15 minute video describing the archaeological works which is very information (and inadvertedly entertaining in its narration!). The museum is wonderful and provides great context to the ruins of the theatre, explaining many details of the construction as well as of the theatrical aspects.
  • It is a fantastic place and the children enjoy the visit. There is also a café where you can have breakfast and snacks.

  • The Museum explains very well to level audiovisual history, being a pass a couple of hours there imagining what that was... In addition the price of admission is adjusted and pleasant attention.
