The museum has been built from the premises of the former female prison (1816) and you can still admire the thick walls and the six cells, today as many rooms, communicating with the corridor-entrance that overlooks the street and the courtyard. There are numerous archaeological finds exposed, most of them recovered during the excavations carried out on the beautiful surrounding area.
Among the various objects, barchettes and clay rowers stand out from the second half of the III century BC. and, moreover, funerary objects dating back to a period between the end of the fifth to the third century BC.
