  • I'm a bit "biased" because they live very close, but that doesn't stop me from passing judgment balanced: this is a museum that already for the location is very elegant and suggestive, and that with the aesthetic renovation completed in recent years has made quite a leap further. In my humble opinion, should be more valued, but it is also true that nowadays, in a mass society and projected inexorably downwards, culture is something unknown to most people, and the city of Chieti unfortunately suffers, because of frivolous amusements generated from Pescara and shopping malls, with easy recall the same Ta are not immune ...

  • I am a graduate in classics and happened (and still) often visit the Museum, which I am particularly attached. Give five stars for what it exposes. However, allow me: the "new" location of the Warrior is indecent. In that dark room, cramped and stuffy we find it uprooted from their context, far from their material culture and the lady that would let us understand the ancient Vestini and on populations of Abruzzo pre-romano in General. Maybe I don't understand the art of Mimmo Paladino, but I think I recognize the lack of beauty of a show that makes the Warrior not the subject but the accessory of that unlikely (and egocentric, judging from the quotes written on the walls). We give back dignity to the ancient things, contextualizing them and making them available also with more accurate descriptions. Let us not talk it down, causing them to become a macabre source of pride for someone who obviously does not know nor care about the history of the territory to which they belong.

  • The fairs genti d'Abruzzo (Dauni, equitable, Frentani, Marrucini, Marsi, Peligni, Piceni, Vestini, Samnites, Praetutii) have a long history and articulate. They founded the city well before the Romanesque period (according to tradition, Lanciano has 3,200 years history) and was accorded this citizenship since the V century b.c. The objects in this beautiful Museum (of particular note is the Warrior of Capestrano and a gold mask of remarkable beauty) testify to the importance the Abruzzo in the definition of the identity of our country. And on the other hand, first appeared in this region the national name, in 91 BC in Corfinio, where they formed the italic League and were beaten gold and silver coins bearing the inscription Italy.

  • Gem of a museum
  • Free the Warrior! That it!! We get there and three three ticket clerks tell us only that there is room in front of the Warrior and there's the Lady and just ... then resume their borbotii out of hours and shifts. The Warrior room other disappointment: just a few lines of info on antique sculptures and a large stele about setting up as if that was at the heart of everything. What a pity.....

  • Well maintained and with interesting remains of Central Italy-Roman times (see the Warrior of capestrano probably the best Italian pre-classical sculpture)

  • The "home" of warrior of Capestrano. Already just to see the famous statue is worth the penis. Highly recommended
