We've been in this museum during a visit to this fantastic town. Modern art sculptures in the cellar of a palace. The cellar is made of caves in the mountain. Try to visit this one during your stay.

This is fabulous for walking through the palazzo and caves which house the collection. Very classy setting and sculptural works. Well worth taking the time to wander through the galleries both upstairs and in the cave basement. Reasonable entrance fee as well.

We visited towards the end of the season. Despite it being a day of rain in Matera, we were the only visitors, which was lovely for us but means that many are missing out on a great experience. The setting is special, being set in the caves for which Matera is famous, but the collection would be impressive regardless of... More

This is a palace converted into a museum and is really nice. The reception has leaflets which are informative as you go around the place. Has lovely art exhibits and installations in each cave and this is changed every 6 months.

We have been to art galleries in many places and we were surprised at the size and quality of the collection here. It is a large collection of contemporary sculpture in an amazing space. Set in old caves, the art looks amazing. We were not familiar with many of the artists (the emphasis, naturally, is on Italian sculptors) but the... More

A visit to this place is a must for any art lover. They exhibit contemporary works. The place is big and you will need to carry the sketch or layout to get around. Art aside, the caves look so beautiful and it was a pleasure to spend time here.

Our visit to MUSMA was a highlight of our trip to Matera. Especially the curation and display in the 7 caves under the villa. A must see.

Sweet museum, cool to see sculptures in such a unique location. However, there is not enough information for English speakers. To be honest, we weren't really sure what we were looking at!

It seemed very interesting looking at the pictures. In reality- nothing attractive! Definitely not worth 10 Euro spent on the ticket.
