....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

This museum was very interesting. After viewing The Valley of Temples it gave you a better understanding of the construction of the ruins.

Prior to leaving Palermo for Agrigento I wanted to visit the museum to get my archeological buzz on. Footprint-wise, it is a smaller museum with salons framing two courtyards (during my visit only the main floor was open). We spent an hour and a half intensely looking at artifacts and reading the placards (I had also done some reading before... More

This museum is located near the Valley of the Temples. There is a slight walk to enter the museum. It is very clean and modern on the inside. It has air conditioning and clean toilets. It has a great walking flow and is loaded with artifacts. It does have wheel chair lifts in areas where there are stairs. I visited... More

The museum is a must see. Their collection is quite impressive including a few really nice mosaics. Exhibition could be improved with better descriptions but is worth to check anyway.

This little museum has some incredible red and black figure vases from Greece, 5th to 3rd century BC as well as a few on a white background which are seen only infrequently. Also some vases where the figure fills in the whole side in bold and elegant painting. These vases, which are really special, are in glass cases near windows... More

This "small" museum so close to "The Valley of the Temples", Agrigento, houses a mind-boggling collection of artefacts unearthed in the nearby "Valley". Many have been skilfully restored, but an unbelievable proportion are in almost pristine condition. Marvel at the skills of those early potters and craftsmen. . Not to be missed is the almost complete ginormous statue of one... More
