Probably the best outside Greece

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.

The museum is in a modern building adjacent to a church and garden, both of which are also worth a visit. The highlight is one of the Telemons from the archeological site. It is well preserved and the size is so impressive when you get close to it. Documentation is extensive and available in English. The objects are well lit... More

The earlier items from the 9th century onwards were so delicate & perfect it was unbelievably hard to understand how they could have produced such perfection.

After spending a day seeing the remarkableValley of the Temples, this museum is a great follow up. From jewelry, to amphorae, this place contains some incredible objects that were used inside this ancient city or even just worn by them. Some of the major sculptored pieces are amazing.

It is wroth visiting for the ceramics alone- for they tell the story of the Greek civilisation that flourished here.-
