I was along exploring this wonderful, well appointed small museum. The highlight is the head of Apollo, found in the Gulf of Salerno. However, the impressive building houses many other noteworthy items and descriptions are in Italian and English. Well worth the small 4 Euro...More

I spent so long in the wonderful 'Papi' museum that I thought this would be closed in the afternoon. The good news is that it's open from 9am until 7.30pm daily except Mondays and the 4 euros entrance is great value. The museum is housed...More

The two-storey building is nicely designed and the collection is carefully curated. There are a few outstanding pieces of Greek pottery and the Head of Apollo is absolutely gorgeous.

Wow. Just wow. It was a cold and snowy day and I was looking for something not more than a short walk from our rental. The Museo Archeologico Provinciale was convenient, near the bank where we had to go anyway, and, most importantly, open. Now...More

The museum is well worth a visit. The goods included in the exhibit were interesting for the similar yet different craftsmanship. Unfortunately the major attraction of the exhibit, a bronze head of Apollo, was on loan to China, but we still enjoyed the other exhibits.
