“Important but limited adjunct to the archaeological site, but ...”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

the overview is either vague or missing. We came well informed about what we were about to see and were not disappointed. I suspect that most visitors did not understand what they were seeing. Small items were adequately explained, but there was no real overview of the history, development, and decline of the city.

“Might be nice to saunter”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Visited the museum as part of a guided tour, but to be honest I could have enjoyed wandering through here at my own pace & looking at my choice of exhibits much better. Interesting artefacts but I had to miss many of them to keep up with the tour. Worth a look.

“Loved this Museum”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Wonderful! Great artifacts. You will see things you won't see anywhere else and in great conditon. Museum wasn't busy when we were there so we could wander around at our leisure.

“Don't overlook the museum”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

This contains many artifacts from the site, removed for preservation. Some fantastic wall paintings, carvings and pottery.
The guide book covers both the museum and temples, and inexpensive at €5
