I didn't think there were so many exhibits on display. The entrance ticket is really low and the staff is friendly. Nevertheless, I believe that the Museum goes more enhanced with advertising and small steps that could make a difference. The environments appear dated, as well as shrines, lacks staff that can control or be of help in directions (at least in the day when I went-a Sunday), the rooms are equipped with panels with written only in Italian. Also, do not fail to bring to life the most interactive whiteboards or multimedia rooms this attraction for children or less attentive to the visitor. Maybe a film about daily life at that time or deepen as already happens elsewhere.show original

Helpful and not at all heavy signs accompanying the visit step by step. The excavations of the Acropolis, a short distance from the Convention Center, are kept very well, for example with a cure that does not exist in the metapontina area.show original

The Museum takes its name from the ancient settlement arose nearby; was born in the years ' 70 and remained practically the same. The arrangement of the exhibits is good, maybe it wouldn't hurt to treat lìilluminazione and add a few mirror in the cases to allow you to see the hidden sides of painted vases. Staff friendly and courteous, but as often happens in these places, whining because of administrative cuts and willing to advance the lack of staff to warrant unforeseen closures or any inefficiency. To remain at the Museum, it is of great interest to the knowledge of the ancient inhabitation of this land and for the story with its subsequent eras has shaped this part of Italy. Apart from the purely historic aspect, described and narrated by finds of archaic material that has little interest from an aesthetic point of view, but notable for historical and anthropological one, it is clear that what most attracts are the exhibits of the era the great Greek, in this instance the painted vases, bronze artifacts and sculptures. It should be considered that the fundamental importance of Magna Greece consists in having first preserved antique painting, come down to us thanks to the many burial kits, only through which we know Greek art first then italica by imitation. Thanks to the Magna Greece we also know about Greek architecture in its most ancient form and as well, as in Hellenic land very little remained of the original temples. It is therefore quite normal, in southern Italy and in these areas in particular, the visitor can appreciate Yes local history but go looking for the "real" treasures of classical antiquity, which then became the means by which the culture still fairly crude was refined in the comparison with a figurative aesthetic sensibility and much more elaborate and advanced. the Museum tells the local situation well before the arrival of the Greeks, but what about the classical phase more strictly understood, does not provide a lot of material. The shrine that exposes the kit "Policoro Painter" is, in my opinion, the Pearl of the museum itself because it exposes vessels coming from a rich and precious burial, the quality of which verges on masterpiece. For this reason, and at the risk of simplifying perhaps excessively, I would say if you have little time the thing worth seeing is especially the one called. A detailed tour is recommended anyway: there are some golds, bronzes and marbles, pottery and painted vases produced locally but also to import all minute attica that that you will want to dedicate to visiting this small but fairly well maintained Museum. The downside, as with almost all the museums of the South, is that there is nothing and nobody that invitations to visit, do not advertise anything, locals know little and it seems that everything contributes to let these things sometimes extraordinary continue to sleep in their millennial sleep even in the halls of museums. As for the excavations of the town, they are not far away and fall into a small road ahead on foot after leaving the Museum, in the direction of a hill to the East. Do you see practically nothing, you have to work just to imagine artisans at work and living city where now are just paths and rows of bricks. I don't recommend this visit, but if you want to ... In conclusion, the Museum is promoted, although with enough: the excavations continue, but visitors are scarce and some stragglers. The hope is always that public administrations to remember have had behind a great civilization, as well as in front of a beach ...show original
