I came here specifically to see the stone of Palermo- contains chronology of Egyptian kings and events during their reigns. I'm a Graham Hancock fan (author) so wanted to come see the stone for myself after reading how it contradicts modern Egyptology etc in regards...More

One of the best archeological museums we have been to. Significant collections displayed very well. A great place to visit prior to visiting Agrigento, Selinunte or Segesta. You will get so much more out of both. I love that they have a placard honoring Khaled...More

There wasn't very much of excitement to see. Most of the exhibits were bits of things, with several copies of statues.

I highly recommend visiting this museum if staying in Palermo. There was so much to see and I loved the temple friezes from Selinunte because you get see them up close. It's also a convenient place to visit if you're walking to Teatro Massimo.

Yes it was free but the upper levels were not open and a curator did not know when they would be. What we did see was very good but we were rather disappointed as we could not see the mosaics. According to the rough guide...More

The museum is small as renovations are been done. It contains many statues, artifacts etc you would see in Athens etc. what is extremely interesting is that Greece occupied Sicily and built a large town with a building equivalent to the Acropolis. This site and...More

My wife and I visited the Archaeological Museum in Palermo during a two-week vacation in Sicily. Entry is free and the museum contains a variety of interesting artefacts, including some large statues. However, probably the best thing about it is the beautiful building in which...More
