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.

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.

This museum has the fantastically important and enormously impressive 'Capestrano Warrior' and associated stuff, which are must-sees. There are other amazing exhibits too, like the lifelike Roman-era bust of an old man, and much else, presented in a very uncluttered way.
