Organized museum with english translations and artifacts thats predated the roman empire. Some notable pieces to see include the large statue of Hercules, the Warrior of Capestrano, and the intact bronze sculpture of Hercules. Affordable, beautiful, informative.

This museum is a treasure, with a large collection of art from the Middle Ages to modern times, in it's beautifully-displayed rooms. This structure is not the permanent housing for these hundreds of paintings, sculptures and jewelry, all of which were brought from the 16th-century Castle of L’Aquila that was heavily damaged in the 2009 earthquake. Few visitors were in this large, modern museum when we arrived.

After my wife and I had spent 2 hours enjoying every piece we saw, a guide (Carmine Santorelli) came to us after seeing how interested we were and he led us on a guided tour. He explained the history and culture of the region and how the artwork differed from other locations and times; the breast-feeding Virgin Mary's; the hidden figures in many religious paintings that symbolized the distrust the artists (an others) felt for powerful religious figures of the times. His 40+ years of museum experience were truly evident in his passionate explanations of what we saw.

We viewed a very interesting exhibit of Abruzzese paintings going back many centuries. Very well-organized and interesting. A beautiful venue and very helpful staff.

The museum used to be in the Spanish fort, but as that is closed, it is now in the old slaughterhouse, and has a nice modern display, with even information in English. The museum is organised chronologically, with first Roman finds, some of which are very nice. Then there is a nice section on local medieval art, and a less impressive section on barok and later art.

Exhibiting more than 100 pieces of works of art and statues, the museum is temporarily open next to the Fontana delle 99 Cannelle and not at the Forte Spagnolo. Not only are there several interesting and rare type of paintings including by world famous artists such as Mattia Preti, but the museum has set up antiseismic bases for the statues. More than this, it is in the hands of two fantastic custodians who kept us intrigued for two hours by providing a lot of useful information and explaining curious aspects/details about the exhibition.

Definitely a visit to this museum is recommended.

We found the museum just by case and I have to say: it was a great discovery.
An amazing staff made our visit really fantastic by explaining patiently the most important pieces of the museum, even if we were a little late when we arrived. It is definitely a place to visit in central Italy :).

The museum has moved from the Fort to a new building which is very close to the Fontana delle 99 cannelle. The museum is very good and is a must visit attraction for visitors to the city.

Wonderful collection documenting local art and artifacts connected to the area. The historical progression was easy to follow from room to room with an interesting collection of artwork and artifacts such as an early Roman calendar.

I have been to this museum twice, one year apart (January 2023 and January 2024): I took advantage of the recent, partial reopening of the Castle to take advantage of the cumulative ticket, which allows both access to a room of the Castle - containing the famous mammoth skeleton - and to admire the museum collection, still in the branch of the former slaughterhouse, near the Fountain of the 99 Spouts.

Although the museum (like L'Aquila in general, despite its important artistic heritage) remains generally ignored by mass tourist circuits, in my opinion the visit remains a splendid experience. The collection is not very vast but covers a time span of many centuries, including archaeological finds from Roman Abruzzo, notable medieval production (the painted Madonnas are typical) and later pictorial experiences, up to the nineteenth century.

The cumulative price for the Museum and the Castle remains very reasonable, 4 euros, with any reductions and free tickets. Note that the two locations are quite far from each other, and the combined ticket requires them to be visited on the same day, so you need to calculate the times carefully.
