Museo Regionale Palazzo Mirto, Palermo
(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
See how Italy's royalty lived at Museo Regionale Palazzo Mirto, a palace located in the historic center of Palermo. This building's earliest construction dates from the 13th century, when it was built as a citadel Arab fortress. For four centuries, it was home to the Filangeris--the most famous Norman family in southern Italy, descended from the storied knight Angerio. Having undergone significant restructuring in the 17th century, the palace now houses opulent 18th-century chandeliers, tapestries, and a smoking room with a Chinese leather floor. Put Museo Regionale Palazzo Mirto on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Palermo family vacation planner.

  • It is certainly not one of the best museums of the city of Palermo but certainly worth a visit if you have time. The main attraction are the furnishings, tapestries and overall nice building. Is located in the historic center and is one of the attractions more details

  • I recommend visiting this pretty Palace whose interior is richly decorated and gives an idea of the art of living in the Palazzo of the past.

  • Noble behind piazza Marina with the reconstruction of the environments of the everyday life of one of the most important families of the city. Definitely worth a visit for those who have some time to spare. Only real drawback is the almost complete absence of texts and captions in the environments: you have to shoot with a slip mimeographed sheets that they deliver at the entrance

  • Historic museum showing the history of the rich in Palermo. 2 floors of rooms showing artefacts and decoration of the past. Worthwhile if you're in the area although €6 is quite a lot for what you get. The security guards like to following you around like we were planning on taking something, a bit off putting. Guides are available in English.
  • One of my favorite attractions in Palermo, a well preserved noble residence of the last century. Small and easily visited by families and groups.
  • Very interesting, wonderful insight in the life of the very rich. Don't forget the kitchen and the stables
  • Splendid residence of Palermo nobile, well kept. A guide on tablets help during your visit. Besides the beauty of the main floors to appreciate the stables with carriages and original stalls
