We visited the Museo Archeologico Regionale di Agrigento in December of 2015 and we were very pleased with the visit. The museum is on the SP4 as it winds up the hill from San Leone to Agrigento. When you’re turning off of the SP 4, don’t take the uphill path that leads to San Nicole church. Go a bit further... More

We realised that this entry fee is included in the Valley of the Temples ticket , only at the time of arriving to book so allow time for both . The array of material found is amazing and a surprise bbc that it did not come mainly from the Valley of the temples but from burial site . It closes... More

Climb amidst ancient ruins at your own pace under the Sicilian sun. Lots to explore. Beautiful and a photographer's delight.

While I much prefer the larger ruins in Selenunte due to their enormous size and the ability to actually walk on the ruins, these here are also very beautiful but not as accessible. Definitely worth the trip, though.

This is a museum in a small town on an island, far far away from Rome … So read the negative reviews : they inform you about the downsides. Difficult to reach, no support : relatively clean toilets, but no resting area, no drinking water, apparently hot in summer (we visited in winter), problems with parking. Personally I found the...

The temple valley is surprisingly large--be prepared to walk. The major temples are well preserved and/or reconstructed and the signs in Italian and English are fairly numerous and very informative. This among the best temple sites in the Mediterranean and should not be missed.

This expansive collection is a great add-on to a visit to the valley of the temples. There are signs in English which explain many of the objects on display (but by no means all).

Having been to museums in Rome & Naples, I think my expectations were a little high. This museum is very good however, just on a much smaller and less grand scale in comparison. Predominately clay objects, pots, bowls, lamps with coins & spears etc. Objects are well laid out in cabinets and the signage is in Italian, English & a... More

This spacious, modern building houses a museum which has an amazing collection of archaeological exhibits, mainly drawn from the immediate area around the Agrigento temples. Everything is beautifully presented with labels generally being in English as well as Italian. Too much to be able to do justice to it in a single visit but you can get a good feel... More
