    The Museum is very small and is standing thanks to the bronze statue of Satyr! The statue is a priceless masterpiece, but everything else is little stuff, the ticket price is high for what you see! We hope that it will not be abandoned to itself!

    The Museum is really very small, has very few exhibits. The only thing worth mentioning is the statue of the famous "Dancing Satyr." Pleasant also the video where they show on the discovery and restoration of the statue.

    The Museum is small but well stocked with finds coming from the sea. The main attraction is the Dancing Satyr, found in the sea a few years ago by local fishermen.

  • The statue itself is magnificent. A reslly beautiful example of an ancient Greek bronze. Pity there is so little else to see for the price though.
  • Very good bronze statue. The shape is very particular and the story behind that is fascinating. The rest of the museum is composed of a few pieces with not so much value. The entrance fee is 6 euros
  • Beautiful statue that alone is worth a visit! For the rest you watch a movie with the discovery and some exhibits including a metal elephant's foot but now is in Palermo. Very friendly and prepared the keepers!! One of them made us pretty much guide providing exciting news than the dancing satyr and finds. Besides Mazara is a beautiful town with beautiful churches, a little nugget just open like the teatro Garibaldi, and the kashba .... excellent bakeries and don't miss the taste of gambero rosso di Mazara!

  • The projection of the find was very beautiful and interesting, the exhibit hall and charming collection, one cannot but take pictures with flash and there is too dark

  • Small but impressive Museum, several very important findings, but especially the "Dancing Satyr" located in the middle of a large room and is illuminated on all sides that you can admire from every angle!
