I was having trouble with the train system so I kind of rushed through this museum. My favorite piece of archaeological ruin is of the attached photo of a Top Ancient Roman Military Commander. He probably commanded several legions. It was from the 1st. Century AD and, as was very common, he was missing his head and arms. Notice the elaborate ornaments decorating his uniform. The very top military commander would have also worn a cape, such as this statue. It was easy to make statues such as this with solid marble. Getting marble from close-by quarries was readily available and easily transportable.

The museum is located above the remains of the Roman Theater, in a monastery. The ticket is one for both places. In the museum is forbidden to take a pictures, but it is extremely interesting and well arranged.

I visited the museum at about 17:45 on a Friday evening, I had the whole place to myself, not one other customer, granted it was dark so some of the outside areas were tricky to see but the eerie experience was really atmospheric. Lots of marble sculptures made from the local pink stone. The church covered with beautiful paintings was the highlight, a close second was the views of the stunning city

The archaeological museum with its large collection of Roman artifacts, is built into the hillside overlooking the Roman theater. The building used to house a monastery, and one can still see visible remnants, such as a gorgeous cloister.

This museum lies in the building of former Jesuit Monastery in the picturesque location on the right bank of the Adige river. The entrance is from the embankment, where is also a ticket office, tickets costs 4,50 E. From the entrance you pass a few exhibition rooms in the entrance building and proceed to the inner yard, where is an ancient roman theatre of Verona is situated. On the time of my visit there were some reparation and construction work on the area. Proceeding further forward, around the theatre area, walking path leads to the door-opening literally in the foot of the cliff, where is the elevator going up to the buildings of the convent proper is installed. Entrance hall of archeological museum is on the third floor, there are a number of exhibition rooms here showing artifacts found in the area of Verona. The path through museum leads to the old chapel of Monastery with exquisite frescoes, and further forward to the open yard of monastery, with a wonderful view over the old town of Verona. Do not miss this garden, a kind of an open air museum with old artifacts on display. The path leads from the top floor of museum and the whole way down, along the cliffside, there are of course some stairs to go; alternatively possible to go down by elevator.
Very nice museum with fantastic views from top floors and from the garden, see my pictures here.
There is possibly another way to get to the Archeological museum, by the funicular. Proceed further to the right by the embankment of Adige, and some 50-80 meters to the right you will find a Funicolare di Verona, going up to the museum and Castel S.Pietro - a nice place where you can walk in the gardens and take pictures of the Old Verona from above. On the time of our visit the Museum-station was closed, and only upper station by the Castello was operate. There is also a walking path you can take from the river bank, but it is steep and height to go is rather large, so going by funicular up and walking downwards is more pleasant in my opinion.

We stumbled on this while visiting the Teatro Romano. I wish we had more time to spend here - it was a small but very interesting collection and helped me understand about the Verona area in the roman era. A bit of a hidden gem.

Interesting exhibits, well explained and nicely laid out. The outdoor parts offer breathtaking views of the city.

I have already written a review about this museum on the listing for the Teatro. If you enjoy statues, bronze work and other historic artefacts then this is the place for you. We found some parts very interesting and some others very boring. Being followed around by the staff made us feel awkward and made us want to leave.

Well worth the walk through town and across the river, the museum is built adjacent to the Roman amphitheater. The city was one of the northernmost outposts of the Roman Empire and the museum has a nice collection of antiquities from marble statuary and architectural items to glass, ceramic and metal works. Good English literature and signage. As it is on a hill, there are numerous views of Verona as you walk from the museum down to the theater. Perhaps not as rich as the Gallo-Roman museum in Lyon, but a good look at the history of the Empire.

The alterations to the museum, many of which were concerned with ensuring its safety in case of an earthquake ( ironically, I write this a week after the tragedy of Pescara di Tronto ) started 3 years ago in June 2013 and the museum re-opened on June 16th. My memory of it is a small collection of artefacts, but, as is always the case with Italians, beautifully presented and curated. That part which is now available to inspect is larger, even more full of light, more extensive and with even more information in English and Italian. The exhibits are supported by explanations that give one a feeling of the growth and development of Verona and are presented in such a way that I saw school children having their interest stimulated.
Further improvements are to follow with the whole programme likely to occupy at least another two years and when complete, I am sure it will give pleasure and historic information to everyone who visits.I have been visiting over the last 3 years , impatient to see what they would do; I am so impressed with the quality of the new museum that I would urge everyone, from those with a mild curiosity in history to academics, to see this wonderful example of State-sponsored education imaginatively displayed. Not to be missed
