  • Marta is definitely worth a visit. In its three floors of exhibition it preserves treasures of funeral and votive art as well as jewels and coins that make it a continuous succession of works of art. From the foundation of Taranto to the Hellenistic period it is amazing to see how the manufactures of the finds have evolved to excellent levels.

  • A jewel of the city of Taranto that can not be left out in the visit of the city. New rooms have recently been set up with exhibits from ancient times in Prehistory and Magna Greece. Not to mention the famous golds of Taranto. If you are lucky you can happen in some historical conference that takes place in its conference rooms. Have a good visit.

  • Museum where very important exhibits and collections of artifacts of priceless value of the civilization and culture of Magna Greece and Taranto was the capital. The gold and terracotta artefacts are exceptional. To visit absolutely

  • Two floors open one hour each plus temporary exposition on base floor. This museum is full of interesting secrets about ancient Greek cemetery traditions. Astonishing jewelry! Some museum staff was not great, specially if you visit with kids.
  • Absolutely worth visiting if you are in Puglia as a region or about an hour away from Taranto. The whole museum is bi-lingual, with inscriptions in Italian and English, and everything is really well explained. The museum has two floors you can visit, and they have a bit of an eclectic "one floor at a time open" policy, but it's not really a huge issue. The collection itself is fantastic and has many many objects that are either beautiful or just plain interesting or simply wow. It contains objects from the Greek and roman times aswell, so one can follow the cultural evolution quite well
  • The quality of the pieces is very high and the exposition is very modern
  • One of the most boring museums I've visited, most of the artifacts displayed aren't even the originals, but copies. Even these copies aren't very interesting, since most of them are vases with similiar motifs on all of them
  • Stunning collection of artefacts well displayed. A bit dry.
