This museum is located near the Valley of the Temples. There is a slight walk to enter the museum. It is very clean and modern on the inside. It has air conditioning and clean toilets. It has a great walking flow and is loaded with artifacts. It does have wheel chair lifts in areas where there are stairs. I visited... More

The museum is a must see. Their collection is quite impressive including a few really nice mosaics. Exhibition could be improved with better descriptions but is worth to check anyway.

This little museum has some incredible red and black figure vases from Greece, 5th to 3rd century BC as well as a few on a white background which are seen only infrequently. Also some vases where the figure fills in the whole side in bold and elegant painting. These vases, which are really special, are in glass cases near windows... More

This "small" museum so close to "The Valley of the Temples", Agrigento, houses a mind-boggling collection of artefacts unearthed in the nearby "Valley". Many have been skilfully restored, but an unbelievable proportion are in almost pristine condition. Marvel at the skills of those early potters and craftsmen. . Not to be missed is the almost complete ginormous statue of one... More

A good place to start a trip to the Ancient Greek temple site. Pottery with amazing intricate designs reveals the sophistication of times gone by. The giant telemon - however did those Greeks assemble and erect them? But then again,they constructed huge temples so why not telemons too? It's truly awe inspiring. Some interesting modern sculptures in the gardens too.... More

This museum is linked to the Valley of the Temples and visitors should be aware that the ticket covers both and you can split the visit across three days. The museum is very well set out, has a truly amazing collection of artefacts and is a pleasure to explore. You will need between one and two hours to do it... More

The SatNav took us precisely to the entrance and we still couldn't see it! We had to ask in the garage right next to it. It is approached down a dirt track (mutters of 'this can't be right') .... but the parking was ample and set in among trees and shrubs when we finally found it. The grounds and gardens... More

Try to visit the museum before visiting the Temples, it will give you an idea of what was found on the sites and removed into safe keeping. The reclining giant has been moved to the museum (the one on the site is a good reproduction) and has been hung vertically. Viewed from the second floor, its magnitude is trully impressive.

We expected little as Agrigento is a small town but the museum was beautiful and the contents astounding. There was so much to see. Don't miss this.
