“Overwhelmingly well stocked - could make more of the treasures”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

An unbelievable quantity and quality of artefacts recovered from the valley of the temples. And a fine building to show them off in. But, as is so often the case in Italy, a somewhat dry experience. However, it should not be missed for an important extra dimension to your visit.

“Enormous amount of old stuff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Used to museums- the Met in NYC, Louvre in Paris, etc. but this museum is the mother load. SO much ancient treasure that it takes nearly a day to stroll through it all, one goes numb with the quality and quantity.

“What a collection !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We were really impressed by the archeological museum of Agrigente ! We didn't expect the place and the collection. So many vases very well preserved and reconstructed !
Do not hesitate if you are interested in archeology

“Worth a visit if you are in the area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

Well structured and very quiet when we visited. If you go to the temples it is just up the hill. The giant from the Temples is something to see and helps to put it into perspective.

“See the museum before the Valley of the Temples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

If you can manage it, I would recommend that you see the museum before you tour the Valley of the Temples. It is very near the valley and is a small museum. It's well signed and easy to follow and because the artifacts came from excavations around Agrigento, it's more meaningful when you are touring the temples. I would suggest 1-2 hours if you have the time.
