Really nice collection from the nearby valley of temples and the surrounding hills. Greek vases, pottery, and the impressive statue of Atlas are well worth a look after a busy day at the valley. The challenge is that for non-Italians, only about half of the exhibits have translations in English. The museum is also poorly laid out so it's difficult... More

This museum was a great learning experience and I highly recommend it. The one exhibit of the giant statue was very impressive.

I was lucky enough to be able to take in a church service, which sits out front of the Museo. After the service, I spoke to the priest, who told me that some of the blocks of the church, itself, were taken from the temples in the 13th century! The museum, that is right behind the church, is well laid... More

very interesting - having visited many museums I still learnt things. The massive stone man from the Temple of Jupiter was amazing - and the molds for terracotta artwork were the first I had seen of this age. And air conditioned too! We managed to go in the exit and out the entrance of the car park - no mean... More

Staying in Agrigento (which is a great place to visit as well), and visited the Greek ruins ..which are also breathtaking.. and in a really amazing condition. We went to the museum almost as an after thought, please don't miss it it's truly superb, very clearly and sympathetically laid out and a wealth of information that helps ... Maybe 'essential'...

The museum, when we finally found it, was nice with several plates with info in Italian and English. There was not any catalog to buy, which had been nice. The toilets had an acceptable standard, clean with soap and paper, but one seat missing and one door not possible to close - ladies toilets, don't know about men's. When entering... More

The best bit of the museum for me was the hall about the valley of the temples with one of the large figures that lined the 30 m high temple. They have a great section on the different theories as to the figures worked with the structure. Some of the other galleries have been modernised - some look like the... More

A visit to this museum complements walking tours of the ruins in the Valley of the Temples. The pottery, jewelry, coins and other cultural artifacts on display were beautiful and well labeled (in English as well as Italian). A history of the area and of the excavations was very informative. A model and exhibit showing how temples originally looked was... More
