A day at the museum
Dec 2019
It wasn't planned, just suggested from people of Gioia as place to pay visit to, so we did. A tour organised within the castle of Gioia, full of things to see from the far history of Italy. Interesting stories accounted on the speakers guides, lot to lean about our past. A place to not miss if you are in Gioia for longer than one day.

An hidden gem
Oct 2019
This is an hidden gem of Gioia del Colle: a castle and an archeological museum which is well worth a visit. No better way to spend an hour or two away from the noise and bustle of a busy provincial town.

Noteworthy exhibits.
May 2019 • Family
The museum "Museo Nazionale Archeologico" is housed in the Frederician Castle or Castella. It is small, but houses some noteworthy exhibits from nearby excavations namely Mount Sannace that dates back to Hellenistic period.
There is a small reading room in the premise. Entry is free on Sundays.

Nice, but everything in Italian
Sep 2017 • Friends
The museum is nice, the castle rather empty but also nice, and there is a kitchen and dungeon to visit. There are a brochure and audioguide in English, but all the texts in the rooms are in Italian, with the exception of one small room. A pity because the place is rich in history...

Worth a visit
May 2017 • Couples
Visited this museum as part of our walking tour of Gioia's historical quarter. Best to go with a guide as there is a lot to learn about the history of Puglia. It gave us a good background to our visit before we moved on to the other towns in the region.

a really worthwhile visit
Aug 2016 • Couples
Not far from the main square lies this ancient castle, recently refurbished to a very high standard. Built by Frederick the second, renowned for his two friendly crusades to Jerusalem, and builder of several other castles in Puglia. Unfortunately most of the written material is only in Italian The castle now houses the very important Museo Nazionale Archeologico di Gioia del Colle where relics and discoveries are beautifully displayed. Ideal for lapping up some local history for an hour or two.

Museum in the castle
May 2016 • Couples
We visited here after visiting the archeological site which is the wrong way round as you pay at the museum to get into both! The museum was on two floors with lift access. Nicely set out with some good information boards and a headset was available

Norman castle in very good shape
Sep 2015 • Solo
As an addict of castles, ot really of museums, I concentrated on the outer walls and the amazing Piazzetta in front of the entrance. Justly this small castle is the proudness of the inhabitants of Gioia. In the inner court a beautiful staircase leads the eyes to the amazing windows. As for a lot of Puglian castles, the buildings around are too close to get a really interesting view on the castle in general.

A Treasure Of Antiquity
May 2014 • Business
I took a group of Americans to Puglia, Italy in May 2014.
The museum is a real treasure hidden in a quaint town of Gioia del Colle, Puglia, Italy. I was so surprised to find so much beauty. The Museum guide has a degree in archeology, he was the extra unexpected treat. He gave us a taste of his knowledge and it was a delight to listen to him. I could have spent more and more hours listening to him.
I recommend this Museum highly, a visit not to miss.

A nice small castle
Feb 2014 • Solo
Very cheap to visit, it's interesting if you take your time to read everything there. Not 5 stars because they don't have everything written in English.
The stories surrounding the castle are very nice indeed.
There is also a small part with some old vases and other tools.
