The museum itself is small but does a good job of showing how the theater was found, and the space was used, filled in and built over during the many, many centuries. Then you walk out to the theater and it's amazing. Definitely worth a...More

The amphitheater underwent extensive renovation a few years ago and is now really spectacular. It now more than rivals the one in Tarragona. It is located by the waterfront close to other sights of interest. Excellent.

Cartagena was a port of call for our Cruise and The Roman Theatre was a nice walk from the ship. It is definitely worth the visit while in Cartagena, especially when we visited in November we pretty much had the Theatre to ourselves. We didn't...More

Worth a visit if you are in Cartagena. Great restoration works going on. Lots of artefacts uncovered. The theatre itself is stunning and viewed from above looks even better.

A very interesting visit. If you pay to go into the museum you can see all the old artifacts and other historical pieces of interest. But, if you just want to see the amphitheater, you can walk around the back and see it for free...More

OK, we got in a reduced price because we're old, but even if you're lucky enough to have to pay the full admission charge (6E), it's worth it. The museum provides interesting background to the theatre and the town as a whole before you step...More

Hello Andreas, It is very easy, just 5 minutes from the port to the entrance of the Roman Theatre Museum at the City Hall Square. The fee is 6€ for adults and 5€ for children. Check the conditions in our website. Thank you.

Roman theater and the Roman Theatre museum (1 Reply)
I am just preparing for our trip in May, i see on the map is showing 2 different location. I taught this was the same place 1 entrance fee but now i am worried that they are 2 separate places. Is there 2 entrance fee for the museum and the forum.

Hi It is the same place - you enter & pay a small fee, then walk through & up (escalators or a lift) the museum & end up outside in the theatre - in my opinion, well worth going, we've been a few times now with different people.
