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!

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

Divided into periods/areas. Hundreds of artifacts and pottery fragments and some larger pieces. Several diggings reconstructed. Good labels (some English). Quite hard to find.

Plenty staff standing around with no interest in what seems like a good collection but poorly displayed in run down building with toilet out of service, no shop or services.Hard to find the dingy, dirty entrance poorly signed. Museum needs some tender loving care.
