were it not for the fact that there is so little inscriptions in English I would have given this greater praise . Having just experienced the excellent promotional by British heritage on the Roman remains on Hadrian's Wall, I was saddened that English-speaking people were deprived of been able to use the Italian descriptions

The museum is ''must see'' when you're in Aquileia, while it gives you a good perception of Roman times. Three floors of artifacts, although I was a bit sad, that almost everything written (as description) was in Italian language, so you can't really learn some more stuff about everything ancient. But I loved the garden so much. It's nice to... More

This small museum was much more than we expected. The depth of Ancient Roman artifacts was the most we've ever seen outside of Rome. The majority of artifacts are in the rear courtyard of the building. Inside, key pieces are well organized and laid out. Half your time here will be within the museum, and the other half may be...

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.

If you are having a visit in this small town with rich historical past it is recommended to stop by in this museum. It will take one hour of your time but will give you a lot from the ancient Romes culture. The garden with the monumental trees and with the thousand years old mosaics remaibings are bueautiful. The exhibition... More

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.

This is a small, local museum housed over three levels in a former aristocratic villa. The collection is dedicated to material recovered from tombs and excavations in and around Aquileia. Unfortunately the exhaustive information panels are (mostly) in italian which reduces their effectiveness. the lapidarium scattered in the villa’s gardens is extensive in quantity, but very varying in quality; fragments...

We were a tad astounded by the amount of Roman glass in such good condition here and such beautiful pieces. So many statues and carvings all over the place and another big room of mosaics.. Too much to take in!

If you paid your 9 euros then this is included in the overall price for the sites at Aquileia. You may be tired after visiting the port, belfry and Basilica but don't be deterred as this is a well laid out museum. If archeology is your thing then obviously this is a must.
