The “Pietro Griffo” Regional Archaeological Museum is located in the historic center of the city of Agrigento. The Museum houses a vast archaeological collection that traces the history of the city of Agrigento and the territory. The collection comes from various state, civic and diocesan owned collections that have been gathered in one place in order to be able to preserve and enhance them to the fullest. The museum itinerary is divided into two sections: the first dedicated to the finds from Akrágas and Agrigentum; instead the second exhibits the finds from Enna, Caltanisetta and Agrigento. Of great interest are the materials found in the necropolis, ceramics, architectural remains, epigraphs, floors with detached mosaics, sculptures and fresco fragments. Certainly among the most appreciated works are: the colossal Telamon of the Olymppeion which comes from a temple; and the ephebe of Agrigento, a sculpture of refined beauty and plasticity in white marble. The Museum is served by special didactic panels that accompany the public during the visit.
