  • MUSMA is a fantastic Museum, unique and special where the present blends with the past in a harmony of colours and sensations. Beautifully maintained by a group of art historians, it's a jewel of the beautiful Matera. Absolutely worth visiting. Do not miss this jewel in Matera: a spectacular museum in which past and present meet. Visitors will feel unique emotions. Wonderful art historians take constant care of the museum and organize creative events.

  • Large and small, we all enjoyed this visit. The location is superb. 10 classic exhibition rooms on the floor. And exhibition of sculptures in the cellar on the ground floor. The cellars have been irregularly, this adds charm to the visit. Each is of size, length and different shape. As everywhere in Matera, it goes up and down quite some heights varied markets. (Well developed) works are beautiful and varied and allow everyone to find something to his liking and to sail his imagination. Very good reception at the entrance, in English. The hostess takes the time to introduce the place and the Museum in a way very raised. Plan and documentation presentation available in french. This museum is ready for 2019! €17 for 2 adults and 2 children: just fine.

  • Modern sculptures are presented very appealing in the cavernous spaces of a former Dominican monastery. Something hard to find, but worth the way.
