The museum's approximately 4,500 objects document 200,000 years of history from prehistoric times and the Roman period to the Middle Ages and the Baroque period. Take advantage of a free audio guide while visiting the museum. If you can, catch one of the two screenings of "In The Realm of Shades," a spatial theater production set against giant Roman burial monuments.

  • amazing artifacts. a couple of staff really rude to americans, ignored loud misbehaving groups of students and followed us around like we needed supervision.
  • Great place to visit, many things to see, but no english translation of things you see there.
