The remains of the Roman theatre are not spectacular as you need lot of imagination to visualise it. However, the exhibition is very informative (English exlanations available) and well prepared although the film is too sublime in my opinion. What's interesting is that the ruins were discovered by chance in 1972 - not so long ago. Entrance fee is 4... More

We stumbled across Zaragoza whilst driving across the Northern Spain, what a great couple of days finding surprises like these ruins, right in the centre of the city......Amazing !!!

I do enjoy history and the history of how these ruins were uncovered is just as interesting, if not more interesting, than the history of the ruins themselves. We all know the Romans owned all of Europe and parts of Africa, so to see their ruins isn't always super exciting. But to discover that a city just built over them... More

Great museum with unbelievable roman ruins of a theatre directly in the middle of a city block. One cannot believe your eyes when you see how it was found and restored. So cool!

When I was stationed at Zaragoza Air Base, this area was all road and parking lot - Filthy. This entire plaza was converted years ago into a pedestrian-only zone. This excavation dates back to the original 'village' on the Ebro, now all underground after floodings and rebuilds. Walk around the basement area of the shops that used to be above... More

We really wanted to like this place more than we did. We like visiting the Roman sites in Spain and have been to many of them. This was a bit disappointing, but still worth a look, especially if you buy the combined ticket that gives you entrance to all of the Roman museums. This is a useful ticket, as it... More

I loved this museum and there is a great deal of information about this archaeological site. The models of the theatre provide a great visual as to what the theatre originally looked like. The amphitheater is also set up with markers in such a way that it is easy to envision the actual size of it. With these two factors... More

From the outside it's hard to know how much there is to see! There is A LOT! The museum has laid out the history of the teatro, including its discovery, very well. They have a number of video and audio entertainment, most of which is strictly in Spanish. There are a number of displays that are in both Spanish and... More

This faces out onto a roman theatre very well preserved and has many displays of ancient roman relics. Parts of the roman walls of the amphitheatre are under the floor of the museum and covered with glass flooring. Another gem in a beautiful place.
