Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a cracking well presented museum. Information is in Italian with a lot translated into English. The quality of the exhibits is very good especially the articles realting to the various necropolis. The staff are attentive but not very informative.

It's far from obvious where the entrance is (in a tiny side street alongside a car repair place) but well worth the effort. It would take half a day to study all the fascinating exhibits, it's free and is open every day. A must for lovers of ancient Greek civilization and artefacts.

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 see it if you go on to the bridge. From the outside it is the most unpromising museum that I have seen. t has the smart looking Best Western hotel built above and their garage below and sandwiched in between is a rather shabby looking museum floor. However once inside we really enjoyed the displays. However we ran into a bit of trouble when we left the museum. The museum is beside a gorge and as a result it has bridges going across it a higher level. We wanted to get to the foot bridge beyond the museum bridge, so we walked along the river until we were nearly at the foot bridge. We saw some steps in front of a building and next to them steps that appeared to go up to the footbridge. Half way up the steps we saw that there was a locked gate at the top so we turned back. We then went into the building beside us which seemed to be a car park, what we thought was a car park attendant was a security guard with a gun demanding to know where we had come from. It turned out that we had got into the back of the Palace of Justice. He did direct us a rather roundabout way to the footbridge. Take care if you find yourself in this area

Once we had found this free museum (by going into the Hotel Mediterrean and taking their lift down to their car park basement and after exiting turning right on the road and then immediately right again down a passageway, we were very pleasantly surprised. It is small but there are some very interesting finds. We spent an interesting 30 minutes here.

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 on Via Natelli. The finds are local, especially from Kamarina. There is a very good reconstruction of part of the cemetery from Kamarina, one tomb having a curious chimney. There are also plenty of fiunds from Castiglione. None of the labels or explanations are in English.

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 two really interesting Greek helmets; some glass; and some installations showing how the archeological site appeared when excavated. Not a state of the art museum, but very interesting. Most of the time we were the only visitors in the museum. This is something I recommend if you have some time or are particularly interested in archeology. And the museum is free.

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 first tried the steps by the BW hotel, no joy. Then worked out if I crossed the bridge, the road (via Nataelli) sweeping round to the right might lead me to it, which indeed it did. Next challenge was to find the way in, which was up a little alley on the left of the building just before the garage. Touch unprepossessing glass door and up the steps. Pleasant welcome to a museum more extensive than somehow I'd expected. Museum slightly down-at-heel by UK standards and exhibits are not quite in the same league as some on Sicily, but not bad, and with a little information in English. Nonetheless, worth the effort in finding it.

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
