  • A lovely museum with artefacts from the Valley of the Temples layed out in time periods and with good explanations translated in English. Well worth a visit  more »
  • We did the cumulative ticket to see the Valley of the temples. It's relatively easy to reach thanks to the bus which leaves nearby, or a walk from the Centre. to see and worth paying for a guide.

  • Great Museum and organized. If you in Agrigento (like most) to the Valley of the temples is definitely worth a ride here.

  • 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
