a well stocked museum

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

First, don't buy the museum fee with your Valley of the Temples fee. You can't get there without a car. Very hard to find. When you do, they charge 3 Euros or park. A it of museum space for a minimal amount of archaeology. Vases, large and small, few statues, busts. That's it.

I did not like the lack of information on any of the sights in the Valley of Temples. The sight themselves are wonderful! The museum needs a bit of love and care...

The museum is in a wonderful setting with amazing views. The exhibits are plentiful and in a wonderful state of preservation. A good museum - but closed on a Moday afternoon.

The museum is very informative but perhaps one needs to be interested in archaeology to really appreciate it. However one can learn a lot with even a cursory visit, The attached church is also worth a visit.

We appreciated the display on the Temple of Zeus, with the only intact Atlas and models of how it would have looked. Other highlights included their Greek vase collection and the marble statue 'Ephebus of Agrigento.'

The collection of pottery and other artifacts is quite amazing. If you are really in to the history you need to give yourself time to absorb.

First, I want to make you aware of a little "scam". The guidebooks I had read indicated that your paid admission to the Valley of the Temples also included a visit to the Archaeology Museum. That is no longer the case, and we were not told of the ticket options. At the time you purchase your tickets (10 Euro for... More

If 2500 year-old pottery is your thing, this is your place. Lovely pots, large, small, and huge are displayed. Painted scenes depict life of our race 2500 years ago. Also some jewelry, sculptures, and burial vaults. Best, most interesting, item is the actual colossus from the Temple of Zeus. Only a copy is seen at the temple site. Easy parking... More
