Wow. Just wow. It was a cold and snowy day and I was looking for something not more than a short walk from our rental. The Museo Archeologico Provinciale was convenient, near the bank where we had to go anyway, and, most importantly, open. Now...More

The museum is well worth a visit. The goods included in the exhibit were interesting for the similar yet different craftsmanship. Unfortunately the major attraction of the exhibit, a bronze head of Apollo, was on loan to China, but we still enjoyed the other exhibits.

Relatively small museum, over two floors, very interesting exhibits of local area, pottery jewellery etc. Highlight of the museum is the mask of Apollo, which we found to be displayed in an atmospheric manner. Definitely worth a visit, maybe takes around one hour to complete...More

A small museum, just two floors, but information is presented in a clever and modern way. It gives a good and interesting overview of the long history of the region.

They had some really interesting stuff here, some described in english some not. Its small and tucked away in a bak street near the cathedral. Only downside was that the day was hot and inside the temperatures were oven like, uncomfortable for us
