The artefacts, the curation of the exhibitions and the design and layout are excellent. As others have said, the range and quality of the collection is outstanding – from Bronze Age, to Greek, to Roman – and includes beautiful vases, amphorae, sculpted figures and perfectly...More

The museum is organized chronologically around the different civilizations that have lived and settled in Taranto and around Puglia from thousands of years ago to present. Comprehensive and very interesting, an extremely well done and well maintained museum.

Took longer than expected, a good way to spend a couple of hours. Staff were helpful. Would have liked an English book with some highlights, but only expensive Italian books available.
