  • The Antonio Salinas Regional archaeological museum has one of the richest collections of ancient Punic and Greek art in Italy, as well as many articles related to the history of Sicily. The Antonio Salinas Museum is the main Archaeological Museum of Palermo. The Museum is installed in a convent, founded in 1625 by the monks of the Congregation of the Oratory of San Felipe Neri, who in 1866 passed into the hands of the State. The name of the Museum is dedicated to archaeologist and collector of ancient coins Antonio Salinas, who was its director in the year 1873, while the title of "archaeological" was applied in the civil war (1949), when all collections of medieval art, initially exhibited in this Museum, were transferred to the Palazzo Abatellis.

  • The Museum is being renovated and was now just open the floor for this reason is free. Really recommend it, the construction of the works far accomplished is really optimal, and enables all in an excellent manner. Both the input that the halls are bright and captions of works. The staff is friendly and present. Advice to dwell a little more to be able to enjoy it to the full.

  • 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
  • The treasures are there as advertised, and the reconstruction of fragments (of which there are many) is honest and helpful. However, the information sheets on the major works are horrendously badly conceived and written. The information you need - what and when - is hidden, often at the end of some 30 lines of text, most of which deals with the history of the find. We are thus taught a history of archeology in Sicily, in the chatty tones of the Giornale di Sicilia. The pieces, the context, etc. barely get a mention. Of course, the smaller exhibits have only the correct and necessary information, but even these are sometimes placed in the wrong box. As you finish the second and third floors, use an academic archeologist as a consultant, not a writer.
  • 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.
  • Nice. It is free!
  • Closed on Mondays. Still under refurbishment, only a few items are on show. Free.
