  • I went back to visit it after many years. Located in the Valley of the temples enjoys exceptional views. At the entrance you will pass next to a beautiful church and the ancient Greek agora. In the surroundings are digging to unearth the ancient theatre. Don't miss the attic vases of wonderful workmanship, Talamone and a beautiful collection of ancient coins somewhat hidden and to look for specifically.

  • 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.
