  • Only for Italians, too difficult for foreign tourists. You can't buy a ticket at the museum, you have to fill in an online form and create an account with all your personal data: address etc. Then...  more »
  • A cut above many in Italy. Tells a great story, beautifully laid out, very well written descriptions of the wonderful treasures in both Italian and first class English. Well worth a visit. Currently.....  more »
  • 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
