A must see-must do during your discovery of Sassi Matera. The artistry and fine hand work required to create this is amazing, and it gives you a good perspective of the actual old city

A huge amount of work and attention to detail has gone in to making this miniature model of the Sassi, definitely worth a look.

This was a stop on our Rick Steves tour. I love perspective overviews, and this was a nice one. I have been employed by museums most of my life, and understand the effort which goes into a diorama or a model.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it was definitely more than what this "museum" holds. Yes, the miniature replica of the sassi is nice with amazing details. But, this is essentially a souvenir shop with a small replica tucked into the back corner. In fact, I thought I was simply in a shop until my husband pointed out that the replica was the museum. Only worth a visit because it is free.

This depiction of the town provides a very good context for the visit to Matera as a whole. It enables you to see the relationship between different parts of the town. Clearly a lot of hard work has gone into the representation.
