This is the funniest attraction I have ever seen.....well it would be funny if it didn't cost €6 each for entry. This is a sad place, full of broken 'exhibits'....half look like a school project and the whole place is unloved and uncared for. You're given an A4 booklet to read but it's difficult to match the correct page up... More

Just been to the exhibition and I feel ripped off. €6 / person for poor explanations and exhibits that were in a very poor state of repair. The signs were so sun faded they could not be read. The whole place seemed uncared for. Shame, as it could have been so much better. In summary not worth the visit

Slightly hidden next to the archeological park of syracuse, follow the small signs to the Archimedes museum. The kids loved running in the garden experimenting with Archimedes inventions. We enjoyed it very much, the people that manage the place were very helpful and kind and showed the kids around. Very recommended.

Poorly advertised from the main road one has to walk all the way to the gate just to find out that from the 15th of September till the 14th of March they only open upon previous phone arrangement. Waste of time?

We much preferred this to this overpriced Arkemedeion in the middle of town. This is a lovely little place to visit. Combine it with theatre or the archeological park. It was good to see the great man's inventions on a more realistic scale.

I always associate Archimedes with buoyancy, pumps and pi, I was much less familiar with the rest of his work. Though this is not in any way a formal museum or an academic endeavour, the models are interesting and informative and I found it well worth a stroll through.

We stumbled upon this new private museum quite by accident and would not have missed it for the world! It succeeds in making the science and theories of Archimedes come alive. It is filled with hands on exhibits with signage in english as well as italian. Our teenage boys loved it and so did we!

Has some exhibits there, but nothing really special. Definitely not worth the cost of admission and not worth the time to get there. You get a map of the site when you go into the Greek theatre area and appears that this park may be part of the area covered in the Archeological Park, but it is not and price... More

If you're exiting the main Archaeological Park, it may be worth your while to visit here also. Don't make a special trip from Ortygia to see it. If the information materials were in English and properly explained, you'd wizz through the entire place in 15 minutes. But they are not. And the owner does not speak English. He speaks broken...
