Easily reached by local bus, around three per hour to outside the museum. Huge collection of historic finds from earliest times to Greek-Roman period. Well laid out, although some more interpretation boards in English would help.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the interior of the museum, they have a large collection and the displaying of the telemon was very well done. If you are lucky you may also be able to see inside the church at the entrance.

If you have visited or can visit the Louvre, the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art you do not need to visit this museum in Agrigento. The exception would be those people with a special and specialist interest in Greek vases of which there are hundreds. Otherwise the collection is not worth the time it takes to get to... More

Rammed with archeological treasures. It is difficult to explain its significance. But people have lived and died here for millennia and the evidence is gathered here to see and interpret.

The museum has a wonderful trove of archaeological finds and a massive statue of one of the Titans that supposedly held up the roof of one of the temples.

A tiring and unpleasant walk from the temples along a busy road, The exhibits are fine but the presentation is looking shabby and uncared for. A lack of cash presumably. The only café is a privately run one across the carpark and a busy road junction. Believe me you need a drink after the walk. There seemed to be absolutely... More

This is an excellent archeological museum, albeit tricky to access by car. It is located below the city, ‘half way’ down to the lower entrance to Valle dei Templi; and situated atop & beside urban Greek (& Roman ?) ruins and theater, together with Chiesa San Nicola. Parking is located north of the buildings, weakly signed and of the dirt/gravel/bushy... More

....the museum is the place to be. When we were there, there were no other visitors, which was a pity, as it is a well-stocked and big museum, partly overlaying the remains of the hellenistic town. It is surprising how many finds were done in the antique town. Important is some early terracotta sculpture, as well as several of the... More

We have seen a lot of red/black pottery in museums during our time in Italy, but were still amazed by the work on many of the pieces here, including some especially fine depictions of Amazon warriors. The highlight for me was the recreation of one of the huge stone men that would have held up the top of the Temple... More

This relatively small museum is one of the best we have visited. Our host described it as one of the top 3 museums in Europe and we weren't inclined to dispute the claim. Artifacts span the time from Agrigento's founding (circa 580 BC) through the incursion of Christians (in the 4th century AD). Displays are thematicly oriented and well signed,... More
