  • This museum is maintained, and driven like a play. Donato whisked between colours, sounds and images of other times; We did touch his soul that reflects and perpetuates in every corner of this House: the great House of his soul.

  • Hard to find this Museum! However an impressive collection of items gathered in caves cave (in the heart of the Sassi), with a guide passionate which relates the life through the ages and different trades "invented" by the locals to survive in isolation. For me a must from a trip to Matera, which allows me to better understand the evolution of this incredibly rich region regarding objects and places of the past.

  • One of the first "cave houses" opened in Melbourne, before the city becomes European capital of culture and is populated by tourists. The owner's passion has allowed us to collect various objects of country life, collecting them in one of the finest exhibitions of the city. The collection includes every tool and object, which has been meticulously restored and arranged in order to expose. The owner guided us along the various rooms of the House telling us various anecdotes related to the history of Matera and its inhabitants. Really amazing collection and knowledge of the landlord. I highly recommend visiting this place, a real blast from the past of Matera!;)

  • This museum is the result of 30 years of work of Mr.Carlos welcome you and answer all your questions about life in the sassi. The laboratory museum recreates the environments of those who once lived in the sassi with ' objects, furniture and pictures. It's a real blast from the past. I recommend it to all visitors. The Council also read the book of short stories translated into English Museum that collects testimonies of those who lived in the sassi.
