  • The Museum is located in the historical centre of Ostuni, in the Church of the monastery of the Carmelites is s. Maria Maddalena dei Pazzi. In a particularly evocative, unfolds a fascinating journey through various exhibits, flints, stone tools, ornaments and pottery, from the Palaeolithic till the age of metals and up to ... Delia. This is the cast of a skeleton of pregnant woman with the hand resting on her stomach to protect the fetus; around the funeral with wristbands and a headset, painted with red ochre, with shells and teeth of deer. Radiocarbon analysis gave a date of about 28,000 years. The paleo-Ethnologist David Coppola, who discovered, in 1991, in the cave of s. Maria di Agnano, called by the name of wife: Delia.

  • Museum extremely interesting, both as repertistica and as setting, the single Mother of Ostuni motivates your visit. The setting, in the Church-convent that houses part, and beautiful. Could be structured and managed a little better, by reinvesting the cost of tickets. Worth visiting.

  • It would be nice if each person could visit. For those who pass by here is a must. Testimonies of ancient civilization, worth the price of admission.

  • The woman of Ostuni is a remarkable discovery which deserves a better understanding by the public. Nothing helps a display structure so little "informative". Multimedia totems, endless signs written with small letters, in red, italic, and often without lighting. It's a shame, there would also be a nice diorama, it is clear that they were well spent good money to renovate the former convent of cloistered nuns, but on a night of full House in Ostuni the Museum was deserted. It is not always guilty of tourists not very sensitive to the culture.
