“Closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Sometime in 2013 but not yet. Our taxi driver told us so but had to see firsthand that it was indeed closed. The website doesnt give any information. Disappointing since this was on our list.

“Closed May 2012 - no date for reopening”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012 via mobile

Having visited the wonderful Greek ruins at Selinunte - we decided it would be great to see the artifacts in Palermo on the way home. Unfortunately the museum was completely encased in plastic wrap with no information about the expected date of re-opening. Call them if you plan to go in 2012 to see if they are back in business!

“If only it was open”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

We were looking forward to visiting this museum. The Lonely Planet guide indicated it is open from 8:30 - 6:00pm. Only thing they didn't mention was closing for lunch. Staff were sitting inside but completely disinteresed when we tried to get in. As we had a plane to catch later in the day we had to miss it. Some parts of Italy are still to understand the value of the tourist dollar!

“Closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

Like so many places in Palermo, closed for restoration. No serious idea of when it might reopen (though they say sometime in 2012 - wouldn't place bets on it). Has an astonishing collection, which you will have to see in books for the moment...

“CLOSED for Renovation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

When visiting Palermo in September 2011, I was disappointed to learn that the Museo archeological Regionale was closed for renovation. I'm not sure how long. I look forward to an opportunity to return to Palermo one day to see this site.
