  • The Archaeological Museum of Agrigento encloses an infinite amount of artifacts, valued as much as possible from the few availability offered by the region of Sicily. The museum displays artifacts not only related to the Valley of the temples but throughout the territory attached to it. The visit is long but well worth it, especially to admire the Majesty of Talamone Temple of Zeus! Recommended!

  • Beautiful museum. Unique! Staff was friendly and helpful when we asked to see the coins collection since that day, 1st of January, the room was closed but the shift manager made up an excuse not to show it. He showed a really poor customer service.
  • Excellent Museo. Large, high quality collection spanning thousands of years. All presented very nicely.
  • Simply great ! big collection, well organized. You can spend more time here than in the temple valley . Don't skip it , definitely worth seeing .
  • IMHO much better than the Valley of Temples
  • Great to walk down the memory lane of ancient history. Very informative
