  • The small museum where is preserved and exhibited the statue of the Dancing Satyr, is part of an itinerary that represents a comprehensive view of the civilizations that have alternated in the territory over the centuries in this city in western Sicily that preserves Arab, Norman and Spanish vestiges.

  • You must go and visit this Museum of Mazara because only watching him live the Dancing Satyr can be admired in all its glory ... looks like he's alive, stopped suddenly at a time of swirling and dancing that preserves intact the movement ... truly unique. The Dancing Satyr enjoys international fame. He was a guest of the Louvre in Paris and an important Museum of Japan. Very interesting history which is linked to it both before and after its discovery. Inside the Museum there is a room where is screened a documentary useful and interesting cognitive purposes of this marvellous statue. The Museum also offers a vision of some exhibits mainly amphorae discovered in the Strait of Sicily. The Museum is new, clean and well organized, small.

  • The satyr is very nice, as well as interesting movie that testifies to the moments of his hangout at sea by fishermen of Mazara. It is a small museum there is not much else to see, but the Dancing Satyr is well worth the visit.
