This is a small museum, not easy to find the entrance. It helped to see the exhibits and understand more about people living here in the past. Free access, but quite old and without modern display techniques.

Went back and fore looking for the entrance before realising it was down steps towards the valley bottom. Free entry. Interesting finds from nearby necropolis, a couple of mosaics, lots of stones and pots. I liked it!

I wish that I had read the tripadvisor reviews before we set off to find this museum, it would have been much easier to find it then. On the map it appears to be on via Roma, but is at a level below, you can...More

Firstly, this not an easy museum to find. A cursory glance at a map seems to show it by the Via Roma. It isn't. The Via Roma crosses a valley at this point, and the museum is really on the valley side below the bridge...More

This museum exhibits a few thousand artifacts from the region, from around 6 th Century BC. Although almost all descriptions are in Italian you should be able to figure out most things. The diversity of objects is quite broad -- mostly ceramics; some metalwork, including...More

Having spent much of the day in Ragusa Ibla and then parts of Ragusa Superiore, I wanted to complete the visit by seeing the archeological museum. First challenge was to find the entrance! From the bridge on via Roma I could see it, and so...More

This museum is highly recommended, both for the collection & its presentation. Once you have visited, it is a short walk to the Catacombs,where you can have a conducted tour to extend your knowledge of Regusa's long history

Divided into periods/areas. Hundreds of artifacts and pottery fragments and some larger pieces. Several diggings reconstructed. Good labels (some English). Quite hard to find.

Plenty staff standing around with no interest in what seems like a good collection but poorly displayed in run down building with toilet out of service, no shop or services.Hard to find the dingy, dirty entrance poorly signed. Museum needs some tender loving care.
