The Archaeological Museum of Bari in the heart of the old city


The Archaeological Museum of Bari is located inside the former convent of Santa Scolastica , among the oldest and most evocative structures in the city (history has it that it was built shortly before the 10th century).

The Museum of Santa Scolastica preserves precious archaeological finds found during the numerous excavations carried out from the 1900s to today in various points of the ancient village of Bari , in the surrounding areas and also in the surrounding area of ​​Bari.

The objects found, some also within the complex of Santa Scolastica , are testimony to the thousand-year history of the city which falls within a time span that goes from the Bronze to the Middle Ages ; translated means that in the museum you will find various types of objects and materials such as stone sculptures, ceramics, terracottas, bronze vases and armour, ancient coins and much more.

The very interesting aspect of the Archaeological Museum of Santa Scolastica is that not only does it house the archaeological finds found in the different areas of Bari , but it itself represents a monument of great historical and cultural value thanks to the centuries-old stratifications brought to light by the archaeological research carried out inside and outside the former Medieval Monastery .
