Seeing the Punic Walls was interesting to me, but there is more here than just that. They show a little movie about the history of the area, and describe the catacombs that were discovered next tot he wall.

We stopped off here with the cruise line that we purchased the tour from. It was sunday and everything is closed. The port is walking distance from this place and we were taken by bus. The museum is small and can get crowed as the buses come in at the same time from the cruise line. It was a waste... More

I enjoyed the short video sharing the history behind the area and the walls. It was amazing to see the walls after and get a sense of what you were looking at (don't skip the video). The cript of St Joseph was a fascinating visit also. A short visit, but worth seeing if you enjoy historical sites.

We really enjoyed seeing the Roman walls that have been unearthed recently. Cartagena has a long history and I glad they are able to preserve it. The museum has a video to watch before touring. It is a small museum, so it doesn't take very long to tour it.

Beautiful new, well-lit and very informative museum with large windows and plenty of good light. You can touch the Punic Wall! A well-crafted informative video explains about the history of Cartagena before viewing the actual segment of the Wall. There are artifactgs of that historical time, as well as an underground ancient Roman burial chamber with bones, which you can... More

We had this included in our package of museums ticket. If you want to see all the attractions this is a great idea, we paid 15E for 5. The museum is out of the way, but not too far from the main drag, We really were interested in seeing the Carthaginians history, as we are big Roman history buffs. You... More

This museum displays the original walls that were build to protect the city from the Romans and includes crypts from the same period. It is an incredible historic display and an excellent tour.

A beautiful small museum, very well laid out that provides interesting information on the history of Cartagena. It is useful to visit because there are so many ruins in the city. This piece of the Punic Wall dates from 200 or so B.C.! The city has been occupied since before that time so it is amazing that anything remains. Well... More
