The museum contained boats, equipment, nets, anchors and lots of interesting labeled pictures. We wandered for over 2 hours after watching the b/w movie filmed during the big catch in 1931.

This is a beautifully designed museum that gives you a real insight into the Mattanza. Our guide was great and the film of the Mattanza compulsive viewing.

I love the Museum for a number of reasons: 1) Its amazingly beautiful setting 2) the history and architecture of the building 3) the freshness of the exhibition 4) the history of tuna fishing, with the mesmerizing chants, the industrial packaging lines 5) the lovely walled courtyard garden

An amazing way to get acquainted with the old ways of fishing tuna, now that industrial ships are depleting the seas. The past in front your eyes, now that we do not have any future.

We really enjoyed our visit to the tuna factory. There were only Italian speaking guides and the descriptions are mostly in Italian as well, but the image and movie speak for itself. What a massive undertaking this must have been. The museum is so much more than a dry inventory of the tuna fishing, but it really brings the place... More

I walked from the Porto to the Tonnaro. It is an easy walk...pretty much flat the entire way. It was a lovely day for taking pictures of the Porto and the Tonnaro. I really got lost in the beauty of the old iron gates, old boats, trees and architecture. It is a real jewel of Favignana. I tried to imagine... More

The Tonnara Florio (later Parodi) is now transformed into a museum, which shows effectively all the processing of the tuna fish, from fishing to shipping the tins. Explanations are interesting and complete. There is a nice sections with "live" interviews to former workers.
