The museum has a beautifull collection of Greek and Roman art. It is also very nice exibited. Good is also that many objects have an english description. We loved it very much.

Many reviews have noted the relatively small size of this museum. It is housed in a large modern building and the displays are all on the ground floor. There are plans to extend the number of exhibits in the future. The current exhibits are well...More

This is a great museum with many interesting artifacts. We had a wonderful tour with a private guide. You can purchase a combined ticket to see this and the amphitheater for a very low price.

It is an important landmark for locals and very attractive for tourists. The first floor shows the antiquity, but the 2nd and 3rd floor is under reconstruction.

Only the one floor was open, but we found plenty of ancient artifacts to wonder at. The ticket is joint with the amphitheater, but this site was very quiet. As well as street parking on the busy street, there is a convenient parking lot next...More

This museum, along with the Amphitheater (a ticket allows entry to both), is probably the only thing worth seeing in this scruffy port town. The air conditioned ground floor of the museum housed an interesting but small collection of artefacts and there is information available...More

I believe that the museum is open daily except Mondays but I could be mistaken. The hours are unusual and something like 9am to 11am and 4pm to 7pm. They are closed in the middle of the day. My guide book had the hours... More
