Not a typical museum- fascinating story and artefacts to look at. Really unusual and gives you an amazing sense of history. It’s not run by curators- local people. Interesting place to visit and worth fee to help keep it open

The history of the museum is fascinating as is the actual building. The layers of history in one small building are unbelievable with one civilisation building on another.

We stumbled across this small family museum in a side street in Lecce and were amazed and delighted. It contains archaeology on site within a living building spanning centuries, a really fascinating experience. Don’t miss.
