Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Aidone is a nice small town. Musuem is worth a visit. Nice size for a good overview of Greek culture in the area. Archeological site has limited hours so we missed it.

The museum is housed in a recently renewed former Capuchin convent (XVII sec.) and contains artifacts discovered during the excavations of the nearby archeological site of Morgantina. In addition to the statue of the Venus of Morgantina (about 8 feet tall sculpted in about 425 BCE), the three rooms of the museum contain prehistoric, as well as, Hellenistic and Roman artifacts. I would recommend visiting before or after walking through the Morgantina Archeological site.

Now that the treasures of Morgantina (silver, the acroliths of statues of the goddesses Demeter and Persephone) have been returned, tis little provincial museum has become a national treasure. Excellent displays of the religious, civic, and domestic life of the area in the prehistoric and early historic past.

A wonderful museum, staffed with friendly helpful people. The staff went out of their way to be helpful to me in also trying to find genealogy information about my family that used to live in Aidone. The museum is beautiful. The one suggestion I would make is to make sure you visit the museum before you go to the Morgantina Archaeologiclal site. Many of the informational signs at the ruins are bleached clean by the sun, but the reference numbers are still there. Make sure you take a photo of the site layout at the museum to use when you visit the site of the ruins.

Another tip is to buy the combined pass for three exhibits. This cost was 14 euros. It allows you to visit Casale Romano, Morgantina and Museo Archeologico di Aidone. It is good for three days and a good bargain

I highly recommend a visit to this museum in the nice little town of Aidone. The collection is stunning and includes the Dea of Morgantina and a number of other famous items. (The so-called silver of Morgantina was on loan to an American museum when I visited.) Descriptions of the items are available in English. The museum is small enough so as not to be overwhelming. The museum is an easy walk up the hill from the regional bus stop. Cafes are nearby. To the left when you're facing the entrance to the museum is a park with magnificent views of the countryside.

We visited this archaelogical museum and amazed that a building so small could contain so much history and treasures. The museum is in the village of Aidone. When we asked for tickets for entry, we were told that there were 2 other tickets available. One was to combine entry to the museum and Morgantina – the site where most of the artefacts were excavated from and the other was to combine the museum, Morgantina and Villa Romana del Casale. The displays were over 2 floors and there were so many treasures and beautiful restored. Definitely put this museum on your list to visit.

If you're in this area you are likely visiting Morgantina and Villa Romana Casale. This small but nicely arranged museum adds an extra dimension to the archaeological site visits and is highly recommended. The history of what you will experience will make much more sense.

This isn't the biggest or best museum in the world, but once you've visited the site of Morgantina and seen the 4thC BC ruins of a large city from a lost civilisation you'll appreciate this. Artifacts from Morgantina bring the ruins to life and make you appreciate that these people may not have had our advanced technology but were our equals when it came to art and crafts. The museum is small and could do with more money I'm sure, but they make the best of what they have and present it in a plain but informative way. It's encouraging to hear that they successfully persuaded the New York Metropolitan Museum to return illegally exported treasures from Morgantina in 2010.

This museum has the famed Hellenistic statue and the silver hoard found in a domestic house in Morgantina. This museum also houses many other artifacts found from Morgantina. As a Master of Art in Art History, I can't say I was thoroughly impressed by the art work. However, for an archaeologist or Classics student/lover, this local museum is the place for you. The air conditioning is not great so be careful of attending on super hot days. Right across the way is Andreas cafe which I HIGHLY recommend for the best arancini and granita of your life. I recommend the basil, feta, and fennel arancini, the lemon granita, and their home-made black berry honey. Also, they sell jars of their honey and amazing light, fruity olive oil. Support local with this cafe after touring around the museum!

This is a small provincial museum housing local artefacts, some from the Morgantina site and others from the wider locality. It's small and it has some lovely stuff so worth an hour of your time. The large statue of Hera is very fetching, she must have been fabulous with bronze hair. The Ancient Greek hip bath (sitzbad) is completely unique and therefore an attraction in itself, if you are an Ancient Historian. There are copies of some gold filigree Ancient Greek jewelry (originals at the Met in NY, although found locally) which are very pretty and the usual variety of pots, shards and coins. Be aware that the celebrated hoard of Ancient Greek silver found in the floor of a house in Morgantina is on extended loan to the Met in NY until 2019.
Tickets for this Museum are best purchased as a 'Cumulativo' multi-site pass valid for 3 days with Morgantina and Villa Romana del Casale which represents excellent value at 14 Euros.
