    Fascinating house through time
    Really fascinating story about the family and what they found. The house is amazing and tells a story through time from before Christ to modern day. It is possible to explore the areas under ground and then go on the roof to see the roof top view. Would recommend

    Unmissable!
    Without a doubt this is the most interesting museum in Lecce and you should not miss the chance to visit it. At only €5 per person it is incredible value for money. From the moment we arrived we were engaged by the host and after his excellent introduction - it's an amazing story - we were able to proceed inspecting the rest ourselves.

    Not to be missed......
    This museum is quirky & quite different from any other museum. The story of how it came about is as fascinating as the building & artefacts it contains. Entry is 5 euros & this is definitely the best 5 euros you'll spend in Lecce. Don't miss it!

    Utterly enthralling.
    Absolutely fascinating. Do make some time to spend some time here when visiting Lecce. You won't regret it. The museum is family run so, if you are lucky like we were, you will meet at least one of the Faggiano brothers and hear the story first hand. You couldn't make it up. We were both so enthralled we forgot to take any photos. Worth noting that this would not be suitable for anyone with limited mobility.

    Immerse yourself in 2,500 years of history
    I agree with the previous reviewers that this museum is very much worth a visit. Unlike other museums that display artifacts in cases, the museum itself is the show. It is a labyrinth of cisterns, graves, secret passageways, wells, grain storage. A visitor is immersed in the features that the family uncovered with all the twists and turns that 2,500 years of occupation produce. And the story of the family’s decision to create the museum is so inspiring and so worth of support.

What a great place to visit,unlike most Museums you feel the reality of this one.
So pleased we found it and the staff are really friendly and helpful.
Please visit as its funded by the family and would be a great loss if it closed or was taken over by the state.
