  • Wonderful small museum. The frescoes alone are worth the time. Excellent information in English.

  • Nice museum, medium space, good value if combined with prehistoric city from where the findings are (get the combined ticket and visit these 2 at least)

  • The display is fine. But the 4-day ticket is nonsense. Because not ALL museums are included. A lot of are closed and private museums not included. And you usually need to drive far to reach another museum.

  • Perfect location: a great effort to maintain the site full of visitors

  • It could be more organized ... the signs that explain what everything is could be more detailed. But it is worth visiting.
