    For now you can visit only the ground floor of the regional archaeological museum has free admission, however what is proposed in the halls is of very high value and historical interest. Is a path that winds between Greek, Phoenician-Punic, and especially in the area of Selinunte, Solunto. The path is well illustrated, the spacious, well lit and air conditioned (it seems trivial but in Palermo is one of the few museums to be provided). The tour reaches its height when you come into the room that houses the metopes of Selinunte, a true masterpiece. Absolutely irresistible treat is the piece of the Parthenon Frieze kept therein. When the upper level is over, given that the work is getting underway, this Museum will be even more attractive.

    The museo Salinas was a find! Momentarily is only open on the first floor but the pieces hidden inside are nothing short of spectacular! The entrance waiting for the opening of two more floors is free! For those who love history and archaeology I highly recommend you check them out!!

    If there is a museum to do to understand the origins of this corner of Sicily it's this one! There is an important collection of objects relating to the presence of Roman, Greek... All this in a beautiful building. Namely that the Museum is currently expanding. The entry was free for us I don't know why!

  • Good collections. Historic building. Well presented
  • Newly-remodeled. When I went only the first floor was open, but it was lovely. When they open up the other floors it'll be fantastic, I'm sure.
  • Museum's collection, one of the most important of its kind in Italy
  • 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.
