  • The Museum houses two masterpieces of art history which must be absolutely admired: the Announcement by Antonello da Messina and the detached fresco the triumph of death. Are works before which one feels overwhelmed by so much beauty! If we consider also a wonderful Madonna and child and San Giovannino del Bronzino, think alone this museum is worth a visit to Palermo! Not to be missed!

  • We start from the negative. Before you buy your ticket we ask what time does the Museum: 19.00 hours. Are the 16.45 we decide to enter. At 17.30 after getting lost in "the triumph of death" and the sculptures of Gagini and Laurana, comes a girl who tells us: "did you see the red room and the green one?" Say no and in response: so hurry up because the salt from this (number 6) at the ninth and both red and green halls close at 18.00. Choose the ones you want to visit ... Grievance: but the Museum closes at 19 ..., it is true, I have to go via responds with arrogance! Wish we could erase it from our sight. But despite our protestations we couldn't complete the visit to the Museum. We continued and when we got to the room by Antonello tipa was cyanotic. What are the 17.55! We have reprimanded. Surreal dialogue ended with: "I'll have a few minutes to prepare closing law yet!" Arrogant, unsympathetic and especially overbearing because we couldn't do anything, just be! We continued walking in the halls remaining but was so mixed disappointment the anger that we couldn't taste anything else. Finally, in addition to the works mentioned, obviously the "announcement", infinite quality in a small table. The beauty and size we would compare to "Storm" of Giorgione. We stress the Pietro Novelli, the Flemings, including Van Dyck, superb "Sala delle Croci". We vowed to return and (re) see this beautiful Museum, making sure before the "chick" is on vacation.

  • Don't go here on a hot day. Even the newly restored areas didn't have air conditioning. There was one room upstairs that was tolerable. However, the great pieces are interesting, including the magnifi...  more »

  • Great selection of works well presented and free entry when we visited in April. Ride of death and Gossaert triptych highlights
  • One of the best museum in Palermo, with the splendid Annunciation by Antonello da Messina and the immense and powerful Triumph of Death.
  • Amazing building and very nice exposition with the great touch if Carlo Scarpa.
  • Nice
  • To highlight the value of exhibition collection of ancient art that it has enough alone works by Antonello da Messina to be seen up close, despite having to endure that are protected by appropriate security glass plates. Other reason of strong attraction are elegant and harmonious lines of 15th-century structures of the Palace itself.
