If you intend to visit the tempels and the Hypogeum a visit to this museum is mandatory. The key finds are on display there. They are overwhelmingly surrounded with notes to explain the importance of the finds and what can be deduced from them.

Smaller than we expected it to be but it was still packed with information. It was nice to see some of the unique objects from temples we had previously visited!
