    This museum is in the heart of Matera and very well divided with wide halls and is rich in archaeological and historical and scientific information. I was impressed both by the amount of material for its beauty and for both methods the information with which describes the discovery and the period of membership of the exhibits. Really and definitely not to be missed! Enzo di Massa

    The classic Museum I was looking for in Matera. A vast collection of artifacts and vases of ancient Greece, which I adore

    The story is strongly present in the town of Matera, which is also my home town. I did not know of the presence of this museum but I was overwhelmed by its beauty and richness. A really nice experience. Must see and representative of the ancient culture of Matera, without visiting the Museum would not be possible to understand the city.

  • Interesting museum pity that is totally outdated the only explanation of what you see are small labels more adapt to a library catalogue than a visiting group with little or no historical context
  • Interesting collection of vases, earthenware, ancient relics from different historical ages. It would be better if your were done with a guide

Where to stay in Matera

Instead of booking your rooms at a conventional hotel in Matera, consider staying at one of the city's cave hotels. The rock settlements in this area are part of a World Heritage Site, and several local hotels offer lodgings at cave dwellings dug into the limestone rocks, complete with private bathrooms, satellite TV, air conditioning, and mini-bars. Alternatively, you can also stay at a small B&Bs or private inn in the old town, where you can explore most of Matera's main attractions on foot.
