I went here as many other attractions not open. This is not the biggest museum and very religious orientated. To be honest not that many objects on display but some interesting pieces.

This is a beautiful and well kept museum tracing the history of the island. Well laid out in a pattern of rooms which leads you through the ages. Does not appear well frequented which is a shame.

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.

Small but very pleasant regional museum with classical, medieval and latter art with some masterpieces. Quiet oasis in the middle of the old city. Recommendation for some custodians – if you have to play games on your mobiles, please turn off the sound, it is...More
