Situated on the Capo Schiso headland at the south end of the town (by the port) you will find the museum and remains of what was once the first Greek colony on Sicily. Founded in 735BC the area become the base from which Sicily was further colonised however Naxos was destroyed by Dionysius of Syracuse in 403BC. The museum is well laid out with all sorts of finds from pottery, coins, tiles, votives and more - it is all well documented in English as well as Italian. The ruins themselves are not as extensive as other sites but you can see parts of the town wall, streets and walls of houses. Lovely views across to Etna too. Plenty of street parking nearby and not expensive to enter - open from 9am until 1 hour before sunset.

A really important Sicilian museum for all interested in history / archaeololgy to visit. The small museum building within a small fort is well stocked with interesting artifacts relevant to the first Greek colony of Sicily. The archaeological remains contained in the vast outdoor park are extensive. They are however widespread and need to be 'hunted' for. Full explantions in English are limited on the outdoor excavations. When we were the first time the grass was starting to be cut. On a subsequent visit to the exterior larger areas of grass had been cut and archaeologists were active in one of the main dig areas.

We visited the museum on a very wet afternoon. It is very well laid out with many interesting exhibits. There is also an underwater museum which is in a separate building. We did manage to get outside for a while to go round part of the archaelogical park where you can see where some of the digs which took place. We would, also, like to say many thanks to the museum attendant who was celebrating a birthday. He invited us to join him for cakes and a drink. Grazie

This is a small tucked away gem The museum has some fantastic items which you would expect to see in major collections; Neolithic pottery, Bronze Age helmet, gorgon items and more It’s a wonderful display of local finds going back into centuries BC-awesome if you stop and think about what is in front of you The grounds are interesting in the context of what has been excavated from them though there is not a huge amount to see they are extensive, peaceful and partly enclosed by a high ancient wall All this for 4 euros!
