If you have done the Valley of The Temples you will be aware that the Temple of Zeus (Jove) had a very strange construction incorporating Telamons (statutes of men supporting the roof). There are some broken ones laid out on the site. However if you come to the museum you will see a fantastic one upright. Next to it is... More

Another nice place to visit while in Sicily. Lot if historical value. There are group tours available but we went on our own.

We walked from the valley of the Temples. It took us less than a half hour. Although it was very hot that day. The museum has a fantastic collection of artefacts from the region. Some parts of the museum were not air conditioned. Bring your own water. Anyone with even a little bit of interest in the culture that lived... More

Unassuming and understated museum that houses an outstanding collection of archeological pieces found in Agrigento and surrounding area. Definitely worth a visit.

Situated in one of the areas of excavation, this museum, built in the 1960's is worth a visit and is very well laid out. Although not huge it houses a great array of artefacts discovered in the region from gold jewellery, to terracotta votive items, to large Attic vases depicting everyday Greek life. The coin collection was interesting, made more... More

Impressive area which will help you realise the beauty and majesty of this civilisation. Wonderfully restored and preserved Temples enhanced by the natural beauty of the landscape.

There is more to see here than most people will want to take the time to do. Having said that, the artifacts are amazing and some date back thousands of years. You can't not go. Just be prepared to spend a lot of time or else not see it all.

This local museum contains many relics from the Valley of the Temples. It's small and very approachable. It's easy to get closer to the displays and see the fine details on many of the pieces. It really set the stage for a visit to Valley of the Temples.

I am not a person who is big on museums, but I found this one to be rather interesting. It makes a good day to go to the Valley of the Temples in the morning, and then come to the museum afterward.

Well displayed. Amazing collection of Greek vases. But then, if you like antiquities, you have already decided to go to this museum anyway - good reviews or not. We took the bus from our B&B in Agrigento.
