The Matera Excavation Museum tells the story of human evolution through the excavation of places. Appreciated by both, the local and international visitors, the Matera Excavation Museum enthralls them with its fascinating rooms, which call to mind past ages – from the first settlements in the Sassi area to the more recent period of the simple peasant life – as well as with the variety and richness of the path that visitors will follow. Colours, scents, sounds of times gone by and surfaces unfamiliar to the touch – all that creates the characteristic atmosphere of magic.
