This is a beautiful, comprehensive museum of the archaeology of Syracuse and the region. It is also a very comfortable building. There is a lot to see and you should plan to spend an entire day. The admission ticket also gets you into the Greek theater several blocks away which will take several hours so budget your time carefully.

If you visit to siracusa, you have to go to the Archaeological Museum of the Siracusa. Some of the section was closed and some section electricity part were broken and some cart, map and board button wasnt work for that reason first we surprised, when we were finished the museum tour our opinion about museum were changed, we had seen many beautifull objects and statu from different cultur, especially from eagean islands, Crete and Grece and some parts from Roman Empire

If you want to learn a lot about Sicilian history, geology, culture, this museum should have been the place to go. Sorry but unless you are a student of the science, most of it is not labeled well and of course it's in Italian , mostly. Give it a miss.

There is a great lunch place uphill toward the Greek Theater, I Love Salate, which has simple meals like roast chicken with steamed veg. No cheese, no garlic, just fresh and good.

My son (21 -into ancient history) really enjoyed this place. I'm afraid my 14 year old daughter (Autistic with a learning difficulty) and myself got a little bored with looking at the broken pots. Doubtless very important. Fortunately the place shuts very promptly at 1pm and we sat outside and had a little picnic.

Although I am not a huge museum goer I thoroughly enjoyed the archaeological museum in Syracuse. Seeing artifacts that have been uncovered from the surrounding lands was pretty neat! It is fun to see stuff from the old temples and different types of pottery and such.
