Agrigento Archaeological Museum (Museo Archeologico Regionale "Pietro Griffo")
One of the most significant collections in Sicily, the Archaeological Museum of Agrigento (Museo Archeologico Regionale "Pietro Griffo") displays hundreds of artifacts from the ancient Greek colony of Akragas that once inhabited the area. Akragas proved to be one of the most important settlements of ancient Greece, and the museum has some of the best preserved pieces of Greek art and architecture that exist outside of Greece.

The museum has a impressive amount of large statues from the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site the Valley of the Temples, some dating back to the 1st century. Its permanent collection consists largely of the items excavated when the site was first discovered. Thousands of artifacts, including pottery, jewelry, coins, and art, collectively tell the history of Akragas dating back to prehistory.

Exhibitions are organized in chronological and topographical order, so it’s easy to trace the steps of time from this ancient city to the present. The museum itself sits where the upper agora or town center of Akragas once stood. There’s also a panoramic view of the valley itself from the entrance to the museum.

Practical Info

The museum can be found on the Contrada San Nicola, just outside of Agrigento town. Exhibitions are divided into two complementary sections which give the nearby Valley of the Temples great context. Buses from town to the temples stop near the museum. It costs 8 Euros to enter and is open daily from 9 am to 1:30 pm, with hours until 7:30 pm Tuesday to Saturday.
Address: Contrada San Nicola, 12, Agrigento, Sicily, Italy
Hours: Tues-Sat from 9am-7:30pm and Sun-Mon from 9am-1:30pm
