The museum itself is little more than a passageway leading underneath a street and a ruined church into the Roman Theatre itself. Consequently it is crowded with little room to take in the exhibits in the displays particularly if there are guided tours in there....More

The Roman ampitheatre museum is so much more than looking at Roman remains. On your way into the remains, you go through a display that takes you through the history of the church and ampitheatre before entring the theatre itself - well worth a visit.

We got a ticket to visit 3 places at a very reasonable price of €9. It is a relatively new discovery and so interesting. The history of the city is presented in the museum and fascinating. An absolute must for anyone.

Interesting modern museum leads you to the Roman theatre itself. Fantastic remains, but lots of climbing up and down to see it all. Exit is not via museum so make use of facilities before you get to theatre if needed.

a very well presented attraction. the museum which you see first is informative and the Theatre itself is well worth seeing . If you're here for a few days get a ticket to cover all the sights

Interesting to visit, would recommend audio guide as not much written information in English. Stunning view of amphitheatre when you walk through the tunnel. Can explore the area itself but steep steps with no handrails so not recommended for anyone slightly unsteady on their feet....More

This site was lost for hundreds of years but thankfully rediscovered in the 1990s. The Roman ampitheatre in Cartagena is one the most stunning sites in Europe and the walk through museum nicely sets the scene.

The entrance to the Theatre is located in the beginning of the street with the shops, don’t follow google maps, as it will lead you to the exit. We are in a cruise and our first stop was Cartagena. This spot is a must see....More

Well worth the stroll through the corridors of the museum looking at the artefacts..... The culmination being as the theatre itself opens out in front of you.....

I an sure you can get to 2 levels via the passenger lift you can access through the museum which is at street level.
