Very small, excellent collections

This is a very lovely little museum. It's well laid out (ground floor and a mezzanine level) and collections are displayed nicely. Because of it's size, you could easily spend an hour (maybe less) here. I walked around leisurely but if you want to read every little piece of information, you could spend up to 90 minutes here.

Admission prices were reasonable and if you are interested in archeology, Greek and Etruscan history, and regional excavation history, this museum is wonderful. The collection of decorated vases and the bronze head of Apollo were stunning. There is no photography permitted.

Nice archeological museum

Reduced entrance fee was 2€. The museum is hosted in what was once part of the monastery of San Benedetto. There are some interesting objects dating to the greek, etruscan and roman times recovered in the surrounding area, particular are the beautifully decorated vases.

Interesting & Beautiful

This is a beautiful, small archaeology museum in Salerno. The building itself is beuatiful and the artifacts extremely interesting. An amazing array of ancient jewelry, pottery, brozne statues, many items are from excavated tombs in the Salerno area. I loved the amber jewelry from thousands of years ago. Really worth the visit.

Impressive museum

I was along exploring this wonderful, well appointed small museum. The highlight is the head of Apollo, found in the Gulf of Salerno. However, the impressive building houses many other noteworthy items and descriptions are in Italian and English. Well worth the small 4 Euro entry fee.

Impressive building and impressive collection - lovely way to end Day 1 in Salerno.

I spent so long in the wonderful 'Papi' museum that I thought this would be closed in the afternoon. The good news is that it's open from 9am until 7.30pm daily except Mondays and the 4 euros entrance is great value.
The museum is housed in the San Benedetto Monastery Complex and is an architectural 'stunner' of glass, stone and wood over 2 floors. An excellent leaflet in English points out the main attractions. Large descriptions in English and Italian proved useful as well .The Multimedia installations were great fun.
The artefacts from the Chamber Tombs were awesome. The Attic Vases superb. The 'Vecchi Fondi' Section ditto. The bronze head of Apollo is the most famous piece in the whole museum and naturally has a room to itself with a soothing musical seascape - really impressive. After all, the head of Apollo was found in the waters of the Gulf of Salerno by some fishermen and is the town's most important symbol.
So much to see in here so take your time and enjoy !

The two-storey building is nicely designed and the collection is carefully curated. There are a few outstanding pieces of Greek pottery and the Head of Apollo is absolutely gorgeous.

Informative Museum
Apr. 2017 • Family
This was a nicely appointed museum that offered explanations of the area and archeological history. The museum information signs are in Italian and English. They had a few multi-media point that added a nice perspective. Two things were disappointing though 1) The main attraction - the head of Apollo was on tour in China. 2) No guide book exists for the museum. Regardless, it was an informative museum with some nice pieces.
