This is an outstanding museum--and I'm a retired museum director--with stellar collections and very fine displays. Much of the excavated material from the various major sites have been concentrated here is protected and secure conditions. Of special note are the astonishing mosaic murals, portrait sculpture, and other elaborate carvings in marble and other materials. Most of these are on exhibit... More

Brilliant! The only low grade I give to the staff, that seemed rather "xenophobic", ie it would be nice to have friendly staff. Other than that, the collection is amazing, so many georgeous thumb stones, and gems are just amazing! Nice coin collection too. If you have any interest in Roman culture, this place is a MUST!

The Museum of Aquileia is small, but has an incredible collection of objects which were used by Romans on their daily life. The glass collection is absolutely impressive, and it makes one understand how, in some cases, little has changed in 2000 years. It is abolutely worth a visit.

A well laid out muesum, though would have been good to have more descriptions available in English. Daunting to see what was being accomplished 2,000 years ago with the technology and machines of current times.

The review below is what convinced me to visit the Archaeological Museum and it truly was amazing. Pictures aren't allowed in the museum or on the museum grounds so you will just have to take our word for it - this museum was well worth the visit. My favorite part were the ruins on the museum grounds. Tons and tons... More

The Roman ruins in Acquileia, while interesting, are not quite as impressive as the museum at the end of the self-guided tour. It holds a fascinating collection of artifacts from the ruins, including statues, jewelry, and a room fulll of grave stele engraved with representations of the trades of the deceased. It's well worth the admission (which, in our case,... More
