Superbly displayed modern art in a fascinating 'building' (actually not built, but carved from the rock, mostly - and quite extensive. A very modest entry fee.

Although still relatively cheap, this was the most expensive entry price we paid in Matera for anything. The buildings are stunning, the original wall decoration where it remains is worth a visit in itself. In fact it is arguably the most worthy thing displayed here. There are some good quality sculptures on the upper floor. However, there is also a... More

I like modern art but it can be very personal. But this place is worth a visit just to see the displays in the caves - iand then experience the old palace rooms.

This is the collection belonging to a private foundation that has been placed in seven caves and the adjoining castle. The juxtaposition of the caves and modern sculpture is not to be missed. It is a bit of a challenge to find, but worth the effort.

The caves offer a marvelous setting for sculptures. Unique, refreshing atmosphere and experience. Among the few places one must visit in Sassi.

The Musma has an unique setting, just like every other place in Sassi, but the collection is only for real addicts. Little bit overpriced.

Sculpture from internationally acclaimed artists. The sculptures sits inside the cavities within the caves, almost becoming one with them. Very unique.

Tucked away on a terraced hillside in Matera, the Museum of Modern Art features interesting modern sculptures in radial cave galleries on the ground floor with a more traditional stone second level. We went to see the art during the daytime but were pleasantly surprised to find out that there would be an evening event - we returned after dinner... More

If in Matera, must visit this museum. The perfect harmony of modern sculptures in an historical and unique setting. Great value for the money.
