No visit to the historical centre of Aquileia is complete without time spent here. Even though it is only a small part of the Friulli region's collection of historic objects, the size and range of items on display is difficult to take in. A added...More

Two floors of museum closed for refurbishment when we were there (July 2017) but remainder (ground floor and external lapidarium) were poorly displayed with little effort made. Exhibition comparing Palmyra and Aquileia was better. Likely we missed more spectacular parts of collection, and refurb shows...More

The Archeological Museum is on the Aquileia audio tour that you can get for a small fee from the Information Office on the north end of town. The audio tour has some information about the museum and garden but it is pretty jumbled up and...More

This is a good small museum with an interesting collection of artefacts from the Aquileia site as well as some pieces from Iran for a special exhibition this summer. It's laid out over three floors and there are also exhibits in the garden. Recommended.

There's an overwhelming amount of stuff here, but the treasures are the many gemstones, the glass, and a couple of fantastic bronze heads. Recommended

We enjoyed Aquileia very much. It is a small town with Roman ruins that have been unearthed all over town. The museum was very good. Outside, they had long sheds that covered many statues, mosaics, urns, columns, etc.
