  • Finally reopened (though only the first floor), free all October, offers more than 2000 extraordinary exhibits, including metopes of Selinunte, the most important sculpture of Greek art of the West, now enriched by exposure to new snippets. And then the Palermo stone, with the reconstruction of 700 years of history of ancient Egypt and the list of fifteen Pharaohs. And the new pieces of jewellery of the necropolis of Tindari, the Centuripe, the vases of Agrigento. In the cloister there is a 16th century fountain of Triton, and a large statue of Zeus by Solunto.

  • Although it is not yet fully reopened, this museum is worth a visit. Interesting, curious and unusual material guarded the ancient statues "completed" with pieces of chalk made in the nineteenth century. The exhibition is housed in a former cloister and includes several adjacent. Notable sarcophagi and other findings. We enjoyed of course free admission that maybe won't last much longer. Hurry up to check them out!

  • a pleasant surprise, the reopening of the Museum. even more enjoyable than until October the Museum is free. unoca flaw that timetables are not indicated correctly on the site and that for now it is only since the pinoterra and who knows when they will open the other planes. even though only the ground floor sweep pleasantly not less than 2 hours. Finally visible metopes of seli anointed, and the remains of Mozia and the Punic tombs!

  • Great little museum and green courtyard to wander round. Beautiful building and well laid out with signs in Italian and English. Unfortunately most of the museum was still under refurbishment so didn't get the chance to look at all of it although tickets were free
  • Unfortunately it was being refurbished, but having had the chance to visit the research section of the museum I must day they have very good collections. Can't wait to go back and check it after they reopen.
  • Closed on Mondays. Still under refurbishment, only a few items are on show. Free.
  • Temporarily closed for renovations - call before you go
