It seems incredible that the Roman theatre of Zaragoza was only discovered in the 1970´s having been buried under urban development after the fall of the Roman empire. This museum displays the remains of the theatre and in the museum traces the history of the site under Moorish and then Jewish residential areas. This is all very interesting and although the theatre is in ruins, the museum displays bring it to life.

Roman ruins and museum showcase a cool discovery inside Zaragoza. A good portion of the museum was Spanish only which made it difficult for us. If you love Roman ruins this is a great spot for you.

The Theater Museum of Caesaraugusta is located at Calle San Jorge, 12. The Roman Theater was constructed in the first century AD. With time the theatric activity of the theater fell and in the second half of the 3rd century, many of its materials were robbed and reused in the nearby wall of the city, during a time of unstable politics. During Moorish times many houses were built adjacent to the theater. In the 14th century during Christian occupation of the city, the area became isolated because it was the Jewish barrio. After 1492, the Jews were expelled from Spain and the area was reopened to Christians. During the 16th century, the adjacent area became the areas of houses of prominent people, such as Gabriel Zaporta. Some churches were built nearby. Another house of a prominent person was that of Juan del Pueyo, connected with the courts. This property is now where the museum is located. The theater has a very good video of the history of the theater. On the ground floor there are scale models of the theater. Outside there is a wooden walkway around the theater, and one can see that the whole theater now has a glass roof to protect it from the elements.

Not expensive to go in but you can see the theatre from several spots outside. What a great find. Worth a look. Still amazed how these were built all around Europe all these years ago.

This is so interesting and well laid out! A very intact roman theater with well marked paths and displays. My husband is a fan of Roman history and archeology (he even was a digger in his youth) and said that this was one of the best things he has seen!

Having been to a number of archaelogical museums on the Roman empire I found that there wasn't much other than the actual ruins. It wasn't always easy to make sense of the drawings, which often was very much everything on the plaques, and audioguides were not available. Because the combined ticket for the 4 museums is reasonably priced I think it is still worth a visit, but I wouldn't rush anything to fit that one in. Their lunch break is, I believe, from 1:30 to 5pm.

This museum is an outstanding archeological feat as the Roman theatre was discovered by accident in 1972. Not only is the excavation exquisite but the museum which houses the Roman theatre is extremely informative and classy. The explanations are bilingual. The floor of the museum has several glass tiles under which are Roman ruins, so you Walk over the original stone excavation.

I visited this museum following the Roman Route in Zaragoza. I was happy to have left it for last. The amount of information is perfect and the explanations are very clear. I was happy to find them both in English and Spanish.

Because of the amount of time I spent in it, i could not complete my visit before closing time, but the lady in the desk kindly offered me a spare ticket for this museum so I could complete the visit it before I leave the city, which I will do in a little while :)

I was greatly impressed by the contents and the staff of the museum.

If you have a lot of time in Zaragoza, then its worth going here. For 7 euro you can get a combined ticket & see all 4 museums. If short of time, read up about the amphitheatre & walk past from the street level, where you are still view a lot for free!

On the ground floor they have a film playing in Spanish with English subtitles. Its supposedly about how the amphitheatre was discovered & the various settlements they found that had lived on the same spot. Instead of being a documentary, they made the film into a poorly acted drama, with dramatic music & 80's style fade outs & close ups! Very odd.

The actual museum does have images & models of what the theatre would have looked looked like which was interesting. There is the main outdoor section where you walk along a raised walkway. Unfortunately, this area was over run with stray cats! After returning from the outside section, go upstairs to another part of the museum which I nearly missed! Clays pots & scenes from the various groups that lived in the area.

Its clean, well maintained & nothing wrong with the museum, but I didn't get a whow factor here. There are also toilets & a cafe.
