Wonderful museum where you can browse all of Aquileia's history. It is amazing that so many artifacts have been preserved for such a long time! The museum is nicely arranged and you can really get to know Ancient Roman way of living - from statues that were there to make city more beautiful, to jewelry and everyday objects. After visiting...

Once the fourth most-important city of the Roman Empire, this regional capital of about 120,000, Aquileia never quite regained its prominence after being sacked by Attila,and gradually dwindled into a smaller provincial town. All that aside,it has an amazing archeological museum,and as well,a walk that you can take along the Via Sacra,once the main drag of this city's vital river-port... More

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.
