  • We discovered the Archaeological Museum near our hotel (Grand Hotel Wagner) and decided to venture inside. We're glad we did because this newly renovated museum displayed the ancient Greek and Roman s...  read more »
  • Museum in which are carried out the details: excellent location, features, captions. Cozy, bright and clean. You'd like to linger for a long time even to enjoy the peace of the inner courtyard, green and fresh.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very nice
  • Closed on Mondays. Still under refurbishment, only a few items are on show. Free.
