Museo De La Muralla Punica Reviews & Ratings
Amazing to see the remains of the wall and the crypt in the museum
This is a pretty small museum and for me wasn't worth the €3.50 admission because I didn't really learn anything new. My girlfriend did think it was worth it though. The wall isn't that impressive at all. They have a short movie about how the city of Cartagena was created which was fun to watch.
This site was 3.50 euro each and was probably worth the admission. The museum and sites are fairly small. However, there was a great video portion that was quite informative. It was nice to see part of the Punic wall and an old burial site as well from Roman times with a spooky depiction of the 'death' God.
Not a huge amount to see but I spent half an hour reading the displays about local history.
Good place to learn Carthagian history. Gladiator exhibit is interesting!
