All reviews roman theatre well worth a visit pink building stage area step back in time la catedral visiting cartagena walk around the main street other attractions multi ticket entrance fee great place to visit cruise ship on display steps site
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
Once again an historic site where photo ID gets you a discount on entry..if you are an OAP.
The entrance building, opposite the Town Hall and in the same Plaza, is well marked and easy to find. A very small museum with very little in...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
We docked in Cartagena as part of a cruise and the museum and amphitheatre was within easy walking distance.

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
Response from Cartagena P | Property representative |
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.

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.
