The Statue itself is worth seeing -- the opportunity to meet the boat captain that found it made this an unforgettable experience.

This divine Satyr is the sole attraction. Forget about the movie, the other minor collection of this and that as a build up to the main event which is the Satyr himself. He's wonderfully displayed and is worth the steep price.

Museum is all about the Satyr and really that’s the only exhibit. It’s a tiny museum with a few ancient wine containers displayed as well but... it is well presented (it really is beautiful) and the 25 minute film explains the find (English subtitles), the...More

This small museum is a fit home for the stunning bronze statue, which rightfully gets center stage. It's surrounded by other artifacts pulled from the sea. The video tells the story of the find, pulled in two parts by the same fishing vessel one year...More

The story behind the finding of the dancing satyr is absolutely amazing. A 24 minute video explains most of it but the real highlight was actually meeting the captain of the fishing boat who found it. His story is fascinating. The bronze statue is actually...More

This 2,000-year-old statue, found and pulled up from the bottom of the Meduterranean by a local fisherman, has been beautifully restored. A must-see in Mazara del Vallo!

A small seaside town with rich history and a museum and statue dredged from the open that should not be missed.

This is a small museum in a ex-church with just one exhibit. (Ok, there are a few cannons and urns too, but they're nothing special and barely worth a glance compared to the Satyr.) An amazing find - first the leg, recovered by a trawler,...More
