  • We visited the Museum thinking of making a quick visit and admire for the portrait by Antonella da Messina, but not what happened, the Museum is in the heart of Cefalù, in a stately home which houses a beautiful library, pieces of carved Alabaster, furniture that are works of art, numismatics, a Greek art section, a section devoted to shells and then of course the famous portrait of man by Antonello da Messina. Visiting stra-recommended!

  • Expectations about the size and management of the Museum were not high, since it still works collected by a private individual, the Baron of Mandralisca. Fond of Renaissance works of art, and in particular the wonderful Sicilian artist Antonello da Messina, I could not miss this appointment with history of Italian Renaissance art and world. The portrait of a man, dubbed "by an unknown sailor", represents for various reasons an absolute masterpiece! With one magnetic look that follows the observer from any angle you lay, the wry smile, almost mockingly, and drawing at the bottom of the neck, under the Chin ... is perceived worldwide genius of Antonello. The rest of the Museum, although heterogeneous, is interesting. Applaud the willingness of custodians, present and attentive, although do not receive the salary for months (so it reads in a sign of protest I can outside the Museum). Public institutions must at all costs be responsible for an artistic heritage of this value!

  • We actually went for a special exhibition in this Museum, it was then but not too worth watching, but she fixed exhibition, especially the ancient stuff from the excavations make the visit worthwhile

  • Cefalu is a lovely place for nature and beautiful scenery lovers. However, if you are looking for helpful and good customer service - don't go there!! People are rude and the customer service is awful!! Was really upset about it.
  • Impressive Olive Press
  • To visit ... especially for the portrait created by Antonello da Messina.
