We finally visited the museum on our last day in Lipari. The climb to the top is not too arduous, and the views over the harbour and town are worth the effort.
The museum is divided between a number of buildings, and gives an excellent...More
We didn’t spend much time in the museum but much more entertaining was the delightful small amphitheatre and the avenue of stone tombs nearby. There are also lovely views of the harbour and of the roofs of the town to be had from the amphitheatre...More

As far as I know there are no museums on Lipari or exhibits of recent history and culture. I know there is also no such information in Milazzo the jumping off point for the Aeolian Islands. You will have to search for a Risorgimento type museum to get some of that information. Other than that if your Italian is good enough you could ask at the churches to see if they have suitable records - birth/deaths/marriages.
There is a large cemetery on Lipari but we did not visit it.
