Not the first thing to see in Ortigia, but a a nice place to spend an hour in a lovely restored palazzo. Very uncrowded what I visited.

There are only two or three interesting things to see (i liked the old sculpture of the angel with his arms folded and a look in his eyes as if on speed)

Although small, this museum on two floors around a beautiful palace courtyard is a must for lovers of medieval sculpture and pictures.

Most of the collection is average, in my opinion. However, there is an exquisite collection of panels depicting Genesis scenes with Adam and Eve.

We were very pleased to have stumbled upon the museum in our wander through Ortygia. Not the Uffizi by any stretch, but a surprisingly full representation of the area's art through the ages. Nicely displayed, nicely explained. And blessedly few other patrons.

We were really fortunate to enter for free. It's a lovely museum mainly religious art but also some carriages and sculpture

Beautifully displayed Venetian art and sculpture from around 800-1800. Many but not all of the works have some explanation in English. The most famous artwork on display is the Annunciation by Antonello da Messina.
