The Riace bronzes are among our wonders of the world and worth visiting Reggio Calabria alone for, but there is much much more in this museum where you can easily spend the whole day. We interrupted ours for a very good fish lunch nearby. It was the best explanation and interpretation of the Ancient Greek civilisation in southern Italy that... More

The museum is located in a central area, easy to excess. Incredible history of Calabria, superb the two Greek warriors. A must on your list.

Difficult to add much to what many other reviewers have said. The Bronzes really are spectacular and very much worth taking the time to see. The rest of the museum is well laid out, with the various exhibits described in fascinating detail. Entry cost is nominal in the truest sense of the word. Take your time and immerse yourself in...

My husband and I visited Reggio to see the Bronzi di Riace several years ago, before they were restored and were sitting in a room where anyone could reach out and touch the, ouch! They were breathtaking, the amazing detail made them life like except for the size! We visited again last month. Now they have been restored, moved to... More

These bronzes in the museum here really need no introduction or recommendation because it's not something that is either good or bad or mediocre or this and that, but rather these are some of the most important pieces of Art in world history so indeed going to see these bronzes. The rest of the museum is best for Scholars and... More

Had a fantastic one day trip to Reggio Calabria. The Museum is impressive with lots of historical objects to admire. The two Bronzes are fantastic and they absolutely worth our day trip.

You must come here to see the Riace bronzes. Truely awesome. The museum look unassuming from the outside, but modern and well organised inside. We had plenty of time to look at the bronzes. We took a day trip on the ferry from Messina in Sicily - that was an unexpected treasure to visit too.

These are quite extraordinary - exquisite - and were well worth the special journey to Reggio (rejuvenated City, lovely promenade, great real food). The bronzes are housed in the brilliant new Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia. If only all museums could be like this: carefully selected items, some of immense antiquity, with simple descriptions and information, all sympathetically lit, telling... More
