  • If it wasn't for the guidance of a great guide, we never found out. Dedicated to fans of history, of what the books avoid delving into.

  • As the Palazzo Biscari Catania this museum is part of the "secondary" forgotten or underrated by tourists attracted by monuments or sites. Without taking anything away from Ursino Castle or the Roman Theatre, this museum is another showpiece for the city (the other being Palazzo Biscari). Excellent organization and the arrangement of the rooms. The entire route is interesting and highly educational.

  • Visit more interested for zeitgeschichtlich very rewarding. Comprehensive, informative. Even with attack simulation in the bunker. But use very Italian or at least English Kennntnisse for statements or videos.
