Despite the walk up many many flights of steps from the town centre, the reward was stunning views of the plain and surrounding hills and a fascinating late medieval early modern palazzo built on the site of an ancient temple. Now a museum the archaelogical remains and artefacts were well displayed with many captions in English. The highlight was the Nile Mosaic.

Hard to believe these ancient artifacts are so well displayed. Make the effort to come and visit this special museum. Clean organized and special. Some English translations. Enjoy this treasure.

Set up in rooms of the Palazzo Barberini which in turn is built on part of the enormous temple of Fortuna. It contains a wealth of funerary objects & statues. It also has the stunning Nile Mosaic. The objects were beatifully exhibited. .

The museum has an excellent collection but a poor presentation. An update of the presentation would do wonders and it would match with the high quality of the collection.

the importance of the place and the finds It is worth the installation of a national archaeological museum. It is set up in the rooms of a Renaissance Palazzo Barberini, lords of Palestrina, in turn built on the imposing ruins of the Roman Sanctuary of the Goddess Fortuna. Precious funerary finds, valuable statues but most of all, one of the largest and most beautiful mosaics arrived well preserved to us. Absolutely worth a visit that can end with a walk through the streets of the ancient village of Palestrina.
