  • It is worth to visit this private museum which supports itself almost exclusively with the cost of tickets. The magnetism of Antonello da Messina is the ticket (€ 7 with few reductions). Notable on the third floor is the collection of taxidermy and malacology.

  • Perhaps not for everyone, but I spent several hours here and found this strange museum a thorough delight. It is not the kind of place you expect to see famous paintings- it has only one, the (for me)...  more »
  • We believe that a visit to this beautiful city should absolutely include the Mandralisca Museum. It was for us a great thrill to see one of the masterpieces of Italian painting, the portrait of a gentleman by Antonello da Messina. An experience to try.

  • Excellent museum of medieval fine arts and local culture. Here you are going to find the portrait of a man painted by Antonello da Messina. You have to buy a ticket to get in.. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • It is a nice small museum...you could make your way through it in an hour or two. I was disappointed there was very little translation to English on the exhibition pieces. The Messina 'Potrait of an unknown man' is the exception to this, there is a number of pieces of text related to that piece. A lot of dark Byzantine paintings & archeological finds (esp ceramics). Interesting exhibit of stuffed animals & birds. Also coins from archaeological digs around Sicily. To be honest I was a bit underwhelmed with the shell exhibit... Perhaps if they offered a pamphlet with some info on the exhibits (in a variety of languages), People might get more from the museum. That said, it was only 6 euro entry fee, well laid out, & a welcome escape from the outside heat!
  • 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.
  • Wonderful
