The addition of the museum's artifacts to the temples outside brings to life the ruins, and helps you imagine what it was truly like to have been at the temples during their heyday!

If you happen to be in the vicinity, which you should for the temples alone..., you should also visit the museum. The tomb of the diver (tomba del tuffatore) is the most famous exhibit, but there is much more to see from the archaeological site....More

Great museum and park. The three temples are a great surprise and almost beyond belief. Walk through the Roman City was a nice bookend to what we saw in Pompeii.

Fantastic. We heard about Paestum from a guide in Maratea, suggesting we visit on the way back to Naples. This site is truly worth seeing, beautiful tranquil location - immerses you in what it might have been like in Antiquity. It was really easy to...More

A wealth of information about the Paestrum archeological site. I’m glad we had time to tour it before walking around the site across the street. If you really enjoy museums and archaeology, I think a total of 2 hours is rushing it for the museum...More
