The Archaeological Museum of Aidone, located in the seventeenth-century convent of the Capuchin Fathers, illustrates the history of the city of Morgantina , from the Bronze Age to the Roman-Republican age.
The collections, exhibited in eleven rooms according to chronological and thematic criteria, consist of ceramics, silver, acroliths of the goddesses, architectural and thermal elements of Morgantina. Among the most significant finds we find the Venus of Morgantina , that is a statue of the Fidia school in limestone with an acrolithic technique, in which the goddess Demeter would be recognized. several masterpieces returned from important international museums after being stolen are added: the pair of Acroliths from the end of the 6th century BC; the imposing statue of a Goddess from the end of the 5th century BC, also in the pseudo-acrolithic technique, widespread in Sicilian sculpture; the treasure of Hellenistic silver; the head of Hades in polychrome terracotta from the 4th century BC.
