  • The Museum is housed in a farmhouse and is superbly furnished with artifacts that come from nearby excavations that you can visit at many guided tours organized by the museum itself.

  • Museum perhaps little known and unjustly little noticed outside the territory. Contains interesting exhibits, is well laid out with a path that guides the visitor toward history. The statue of Minerva Tritonia alone is worth the visit! Not counting the closeness to the old town of Pratica di Mare, a gem (maybe a bit neglected ...)

  • After visiting the small town of Pratica di mare (hamlet of Pomezia) that engages the Acropolis of the ancient town and the medieval layout, we cross the monumental portal and about a hundred meters (via practice s.n. c) notice a beautiful classic building converted in 2005 in the current Museum of Lavinium. Along the driveway we accompany the verses of the Aeneid and an inscription dedicated to the archaeologist Carlin recalls that he was one of the pioneers of archaeological research in the area. The Museum consists of about five halls well organized according to modern concepts that use of instructional videos, pictures and reconstruction aid that nicely complement the paucity of finds in numerical sense, but of great archaeological and historical value. In one of the first salt salt is kept the terracotta statue of Tritonia virgo (Minerva) linked to the cults of initiation of young girls, patrician in the rites related to these cultural practices votive clay statues, laid and are dated from the fifth century. in the 3rd century BC. In addition you can see materials from the area of ' XIII Are ' (become 14 following the recent excavations) which together with the nearby tumulus of Heroon c. d di Enea (the place where the ancient thought was buried Enea), were in use from the 7th to the 4th century b.c. and were given exhibits such as figurines, ceramics, weapons, artifacts and bronze plates, famous with a dedication to the Dioscuri , testimony to how certain cults of Magna-Greece had penetrated into Lazio primitivo. To integrate with a visit to the excavations of ancient Lavinium there close. (information at the ticket counter of the Museum). Only downsides, as source of the commune of Pomezia we learn that we organize civil wedding ceremonies at the Conference Hall of the Museum. Although the finds have found a worthy location (remember when they lay on old crates, where some of them had held wines), on the other hand certain ' orchestra rehearsals ' are ' the overture for a commercialization that has now no limit ... forgetting that the first task is that of conservation!

Oops, sorry I left drag was a likeable and talented Guide, which involved in an unforgettable journey into the past. Thank you.

  • Interesting Museum and the collection is presented in a modern and original. A must for those who, like me, are passionate about antiquity Lazio and the legend of Aeneas. Very great disappointment however when visiting the archaeological site (13 archaic altars and "Tomb of Aeneas") were refused. For those who make the trip from the Belgium or abroad in general, it is incomprehensible and unacceptable to not have access to this magnificent heritage.
