Well presented museum. The finds are organized by the location of the archaeological digs. The Warrior of Capestrano has pride of place. I was impressed with the quality of the burial goods. Gorgeous burial beds, weapons ad armour.

The museum is a both a fascinating experience and a great history lesson with many MANY exhibits. While the warrior of Capistrano is definitely the highlight of the museum, the other exhibits only add to the flavor and rich history of the region.

While the highlight’s undoubtedly the Capistrano Warrior, there’s much else to relish here. Well worth a visit; it’s rarely busy.

The one in Pescara about the peoples of the Abruzzo is fine, but the scope of this museum is amazing. It is very new and the explanations under the exhibits are also in good English. It is located in a beautiful villa in a scenic...More

My only objection to this place is the same that others have posted: the personnel make you feel like an intruder. Except for the bored ticket seller, though, I was lucky enough to have been alone the whole time there! it'll take you an hour...More

An excellently laid out museum with locally found artifacts. If old coins are your interest, it has a wonderful collection. There is also jewelry, statues & other fascinating pieces. Located in an old villa, the estate is now a popular park.
