Museum is open.

The message on TripAdvisor that the museum was temporarily closed was not correct. Luckily we weer anyway and experienced the impressive collection. Just one criticism. The online information, accessible by QR-codes, is very interesting, but only available in Italian.

A fascinating journey in search of our roots

Beatiful museum with a gorgeous collection of ancient roman and pre-roman artifacts found in the Abruzzo region. The museum, located in An old villa in the centre of Chieti, is also the home of the "Warrior of Capestrano", probably the most iconic, beautiful and enigmatic sculpture from the Italic pre-roman age. All sections of the museum are provided with English info panels. Warmly recommended to all visitors passing by the provinces of Pescara and Chieti.

We really enjoyed the nicely laid out museum. Apart from the justly famed Capestrano warrior, there were many excellent and rich funerary artefacts and their context was well described. Good English translations.

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.

This museum traces the evolution of the people of Chieti and the tribes that inhabited it. Wonderful exhibits of the items from the time. Really fantastic. Allow at least 2 hours. It does get a bit overwhemlimg after a while but a muct see. Highly recommend.

Really worth visiting

Apart from the very well known warrior of Capestrano which is a must to see if you are in Abruzzo, this museum houses a nice collection of funerary objects found in several burial areas in Abruzzo which date back to IV or V cent BC. There is also a room with a coin collection which is wonderfully displayed. I love it also for the clear explanation panels on the side.

If you see one Museum in Abruzzo...

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 garden. The numismatic section is almost too extensive, but if you’re interested in coins, this is your paradise.
Chieti is an ancient city, we’re talking Paleolithic. From there to the local Italic people, then, the Greeks, Romans, Middle Ages and so on.
The pièce de résistance, though, must be the Warrior of Capistrano. It is not the statue only. The whole culture that produced it was mysterious. It’s the first exhibit on your left in a perfectly lit room.
The staff are pretty unhelpful. Maybe it’s because they’ll I’ll paid or because they’re bored since the museum (thankfully) rarely has any visitors.
