A pleasant, quite small museum, but definitely worth a visit. We went after walking round the temples, but I think it would be better visited beforehand.

The entrance to the museum and the site of Paestum is covered by a single ticket. The museum is a must visit as it shows representations of how the site looked and has recreations of the friezes along the top of the temple. There are...More

The museum is worth and hour, many parts of the buildings, metopes, etc., and interpretation maps and exhibits. It is much improved since my last visit a number of years ago. Free first Sunday.

It is a small museum and you can visit the museum with the same ticket as the one for the temple-area.

Definitely worth a visit to see parts of the ruins kept inside. The frescoes told a story about life, which you cannot imagine from the ruins.

Very appealing stone museum. Artifacts inside we're amazing but not contextualized. Signage was in Italian and sometimes English. I hated the long horizontal print, just couldn't figure out where I was in the text and soon started skipping it. Needs columns like in newspapers! My...More

we contemplated not doing the museum but were glad we did. It's quite big but we chose an audio guide which is for the ruins also and this was great. There is a variety of stuff on display with something to suit everyone.
