  • More guards than visitors, the museum is pleasant quiet. The art is very worth it and the photo exhibition of henri Cartier-Bresson interesant. A cup of coffee and a walk across the courtyard make your visit complete.

  • Visit the photo exhibition dedicated to Cartier Bresson, objectively ticket expensive (10 euros), well laid out but disturbed by the embarrassing and rude student group (an Art Institute ...) which seemed to be at ease in the cackle, Scream and take pictures with your mobile phone, all of this without the wait staff, however numerous, intervened nor appeared uneasy about a blatant disrespect towards visitors really interested. The place that houses the Gallery is very nice, nicely restored and steeped in history, as with most things in Sicily from losing charm for rough work (the garden is shameful) or never completed.

  • A gallery exhibiting paintings and sculptures spanning the period from the mid-19th to the 20th century. With a majority presence of Sicilian artists at exensian for Gallery where, unlike many others, the path is easy, the exhibits remain rational and, above all, grouped by period with a clear and comprehensive explanation of each room, which places the artists in a well defined historical period and with connections to the history and culture of the various eras. Large halls, works well lit and possibility of pausing to admire them. In short, a gallery for a few enthusiasts but where anyone can enjoy it, and, above all, the feeling of not looking "because it had to be done", but having seen it, what matters, have figured out something more. Very satisfied and I am not an expert.

  • Was open during Xmas 2017 despite Google. Great exhibition of Bresson at time. Rest was also very good with some very impressive classical sculptures and early contemporary paintings.
  • Take your time! Two hours and only because we were hurried. A permanent exhibition + an occasional exhibition, a charming combination. Diffused in two structures. It is highly recommended
  • GAM Empedocle Restivo shows Sicilian painters, and went to see the photo exhibition of Henry Cartier Bresson which is worth having a look at
  • I don’t know much about art. Somehow I expected more modern art like moma .... but maybe that is what modern is in Europe
  • Not as modern as you might think, but a fascinating look into the recent history of sicilian art nonetheless.
