  • In the heart of the archaeological area of Agrigento is the Museum, tells the story of our town, most exhibits the least intact statues, faces, evocative ambience indoors and outdoors are able to transport you into another dimension. Visit the Museum of Agrigento is a must for tourists but also for the residents, just so they can appreciate and respect the place where you live.

  • A massive collection of Greek artefacts including in the collection a reassembled stone Atlas from the sadly leveled temple of Olympian Zeus.
  • Really an unexpected discovery. Museum that really deserves a lot, full of artifacts and well organized: the right spaces, air conditioning, well illustrated. You can enjoy your visit in peace because the place is uncrowded. Two small things to improve: the panels are too long, it is impossible to read them all. Also the final room was well laid out like the other (the exhibits in the cases were piled on top of one another, probably due to a temporary rearrangement).

  • What struck me about this museum was to see a whole room,,,, the largest, the Hall named after Paolo Orsi, where in the middle of the room stands a large and intact vase ... A crater of 460 b.c. excavations of Gela (Terranova di Sicilia then). What I can't figure out why is this Museum and not that of Gela # # #

  • I think you can admire more Greek here than in Greece itself. Shame about the poor management of the place. To see absolutely

  • Fantastic Museum, above and beyond normal expectations. Great, a bit too vintage but has so much to teach. I highly recommend visiting if interested in classical culture.
