National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria: Calabria's ancient treasures.

The National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria is one of Italy's most important museums. It is home to one of the finest collections of archaeological finds and excavations dating from Magna Graecia. The museum is arranged over four levels and 220 showcases exhibiting terracotta statues, weapons, ceramics, paintings with bas-relief depictions, architectural fragments, hand-decorated vases and artefacts that narrate the daily life of their period in history. One room is dedicated to the Old and Young Riace Bronzes and the treasures of the Porticello wreck found in its inlets. The Museum also exhibits the excavations of a Hellenist Necropolis that came to light during its construction, while some of its spaces are now dedicated to temporary exhibitions promoting the local cultural heritage.
