    Interesting if you are a fan of archaeology
    Lots of ancient artefacts from past residents of Sicilia, including some sizeable remnants of temples. The setting is a former monastery. The architecture, including the pools, fountains and live turtles, adds interest. Security on entry is airport style.

    Beautiful setting for wonderful museum
    A gem of a museum in a beautiful setting with amazing artifacts. There is a beautiful garden with natural light in the middle of rooms accessible from the garden with items dating back to the 7 th century BC and beyond. Wonderful informative presentation with some incredible displays. We visited at the beginning of a 9 day tour of Sicily and many of these artifacts were from sites we later visited in Agrigento and Siracusa. Definitely recommend visiting this museum for an hour or two. It is nearby great little side streets for a meal near the Opera house.

    Wow!
    This place was amazing. We got there not long after 9am and initially had the place to ourselves. The collections are incredible. Allow a couple of hours to have a good look around. There is an English translation of the text for each exhibit. Hired the audio guide for 5 euro, also includes a map. It is a beautiful facility.

    Collection is both large enough and small enough
    We spent about two hours at this museum. The collection is both large enough to appreciate the scope of the collection and small enough to enjoy the various exhibits without getting overwhelmed. It also has a lovely museum shop.

    Nice, small regional museum
    Certainly not a must, but worth a visit if you love statues from the Roman era, free to visit every first Sunday of the month. I especially liked the part where they painted some statues so they will look as they were in the times of antiquity (usually you see most of them as white because their color were ground by the sands of time). Took less than an hour to visit.

This was a beautiful, peaceful museum with some amazing artifacts in a lovely old monastry. It was 7 euro entry and good value. Nice staff.

I had read some negative reviews for this museo. I found it full of information and respite from the hustle of Palermo. The water features made for a cooling experience from the warm weather.

Loved this! Quiet, gorgeous setting, great relics from Sicilian ancient sights. Even better if you have visited any of the temples. Great spot to enjoy an hour or two!

Came here primarily because daughter is doing her masters in ancient history so thought I would get some photos for her. It's not huge but didn't expect it to be. But the was a lot to see and I really enjoyed it. Husband even enjoyed it as he said it was what our daughter is passionate about. Everything was labelled so you knew exactly what you were looking at.
