Specialty Museum
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.

  • When looking for a holiday I chose Zaragoza due to the rich Roman history and ruins and I was surly not let down. This Museum has a lot of information about the rich history of Zaragoza with well kept...  more »
  • Well, it's a place that logically have to be, because it is part of the city's Roman history. Logically, the most important is the remains of the theatre that is on the outside. The audiovisual that put us surprised negatively. I still don't understand what was the intention that did. Does not provide relevant historical information, nor any curious details about the remains. Perhaps you should think about making a new one. The showcases archaeological remains extremely tight, but they are fast. The first Sunday of each month, it's free.

  • It is worth approaching these remains of Roman times, very well preserved, if you want to take something there is a terrace overlooking the ruins.

  • 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.
