  • An exciting and certainly to live experience that of the visit to the Museum of The Toy and Waxes of Bagheria, which Professor. Pietro Piraino Papoff directs with dedication and expertise. A dive into the past for us adults who rediscover the charm of the games of the past and get excited returning children! A very pleasant visit, enhanced by the presence of the director of the museum who, through the account of his extraordinary personal history, also gives testimony of the Jewish genocide, whose memory must be preserved.

  • A magical visit to the museum of waxes and the ancient toy Piraino, the owner, as well as excellent guide, accompanied us on the visit explaining with passion and culture as exhibited in the windows and rooms of the museum. We go back in time, centuries of history enclosed in display cases and showcases, toys of wax, wood, tin... The municipality should make the most of this site, but above all cooperate with the owner so that this treasure chest of memory is not lost.

  • We visited the Museum on all Saints ' day, 1 November, and fortunately found it open. The monastery hosting it is beautiful in itself as a monument. Waxes and toys are interesting and create a magical setting. But the value added is the Director of the Museum, which made us guide: prof. Piraino accompanied the visit with a thousand stories related to the creation and management of the Museum, and its very interesting personal history. Moving the story through which the Professor came into possession of the toy from the concentration camp at Mathausen. to do.

  • Yes, it is history, memory, culture and so on. But in the same time it's no so wonderful and amazing. It's boring and creepy. And I think 5 euro is high price for it.
  • Jjj
  • Listening to the voice of Pietro Piraino Papoff who tells stories of life lived among the unique wonders of his museum is a journey through history, memory, emotions that transposed into a magical universe. Don't miss it at all.

  • Lovely idea linked to a story of so much love for the toy. Pity that the Administration does not understand the purpose of this museum. I recommend not only for the ridiculously low price but also because it allows a blast from the past and its memories. Useful to explain to their children that I ngenuity was born of the imagination that nowadays with video games is hard to find.
