The National Museum of Siritide of Policoro is located near the ancient Siris-Herakleia.

It is devoted to the Greek colonies of Siris (VII-VI century B.C.) and Herakleia (V century B.C. - A.D. I-II century) and to the Italic world of the Agri and Sinni valleys.

Through an exhibition based on chronological and topographical criteria, it supplies information about different aspects of the two subsequent Greek colonies, such as civil, economic and religious life and handicraft.

The archaeological finds come from both the towns and the respective necropolises, such as the so-called ‘Tomba di Policoro’.
