Museo Nazionale Archeologico Reviews
Musée moderne et bien conçu qui vaut bien le détour.

The collections range from prehistory to the Greek and Roman times for the most part, up to the Byzantine period and show the historical importance of Taranto and its region. Beautiful pieces (statue of Zeus, objects accompanying the deceased, jewels in gold, ceramics and mosaics...) throughout the visit (about two hours). I have noted rare (seems to me) representations of Africans and mussels for an "industrial" production of statuettes already at that time! A very nice Museum, not very crowded when we went there, to discover for its rich collections.
The museum was closed in the middle of the day for some kind of a meeting. REALLY??!!. If Taranto is serious about tourism, this practice must be reconsidered. What a disappointment :( more »
one of the best series of greek/italiote artefacts ive seen and very nice volunteers/staff.
Wonderful exhibits, but too hot!!
