An excellently laid out museum with locally found artifacts. If old coins are your interest, it has a wonderful collection. There is also jewelry, statues & other fascinating pieces. Located in an old villa, the estate is now a popular park.

This museum has the fantastically important and enormously impressive 'Capestrano Warrior' and associated stuff, which are must-sees. There are other amazing exhibits too, like the lifelike Roman-era bust of an old man, and much else, presented in a very uncluttered way.

Some very interesting pieces that provide a glimpse into the local past. Many smaller items dominate (only sometimes are there descriptions in English), but the larger pieces are good.

Chieti has a lot of interesting museums and historical sites. This one's a must-see with fascinating and remarkably complete relics of a very old civilisation, way before the Romans. A real eye-opener.

Beautiful museum near the center of town. Worth seeing. Not sure why it was so empty. (September 2015)
