The skeleton of the 25,000 year old pregnant woman and her baby was fascinating. There was a film about the discovery of the skeleton which was, unfortunately, only in Italian so I could not understand everything. There were a number of information posters on the...More

It was interesting to see the remains of "La Donna di Ostuni" who lived over 25,000 years ago and was pregnant at the time of her death. Otherwise, the museum is very tiny.

There are some very interesting items in this collection, especially the remains of the pre-historic mother and child. But it is a work in progress -- they are undertaking a major renovation and installing lots of modern exhibits. For the moment, it isn't worth more...More

Lonely Planet says free but we had to pay 5 euros each and nothing is in English so waste of time unless you can speak Italian. 'Tour' finishes with a wax work in a cave? Hmm. Learnt nothing of the area
