Good collection of materials found in the region, though the focus is mainly on the Roman finds. Ancient cemetery could be viewed when walking around the building.

This museum is built over the Roman acropolis so out from the centre in what was the edge of town. Follow the signs to El Corte Ingles, turn left along the side of the store then look behind you. A very interesting museum with detailed explanations in English and Spanish. There is also a very helpful video available which explains... More

Closed naturally on Monday. Went back FOUR times on the Tuesday only to be advised closed due to electrical issues….kepy going back but to NO avail. NOBODY had showed up to fix the problem…myself and fellow tourists were left unable to see one of the sites of the city. MOST disappointing.

Quite far from downtown, you can find this small museum. There are few visitors and therefore the staff can guide your visit. If they offer, do not refuse. You get an overall of the whole history not only of Cartagena but the whole area. It is not as amazing as the Roman Theater, but it's a must.

This is where we show our fiends what was found under our building at LOS NIETOS. The time scale covered ranges from fossils some millions of years old discovered in local caves through Iberian stone, bronze and iron age periods to relatively modern Roman times. It is somehow comforting to know that people have been living where we spend some... More

Wonder around, take your time, imagine life not as we know it but sophisticated, ancient and organized. I want to read Conn Iggulden's books on the Roma Empire all over again. It makes the history of Spain real.

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum and spent a long time there. It was particularly fortunate that the temporary exhibition of the finds from the Foro Romano excavation had opened. The collection of stone columns, capitals and carvings was exceptional. I enjoyed the costumes from the Federation of Carthaginians and Romans - I had seen them on the BBC TV series... More

The architecture is nice and it has some impressive old evidence of population and seafare in the mediteainian sea 2000 years ago. Coins, containers ect. I was a little bit surprised that the exibition is not so big. Deducting the space used for showing the kids the same stuff in comic style the remainder is quite small. Nevertheless it is... More
