“Great place to go to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This old tuna canning factory is now a mixture of interesting architecture, artistry and history. It's a great place to go and look about. The huge old tuna fishing boats really make you think about the scale of the operations that used to be run from here.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

SImply put, this is not to miss. Aside from a great beach or two, this was the highlight of the visit. History, emotion, human interest...it had it all. The staff is fantastic, engaging and well-informed. They brought history to life. Further, something like this, FREE, is unheard of today. Complimenti!

“A real must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This is in the island of Favignana and you just have to give it a visit - it is absolutely HUGE with different rooms - some containing old tuna boats, photographs, screens showing tuna being caught complete with the cries of the fishermen - all very eery but informative and quite awesome. Children and adults will enjoy it.

“Just Go!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

A place you must visit, especially if you are at Favignana, since this place is simply the climax of the island. The tour is very interesting and also interactive at times. Entrance is free, even for the tour. Just go, and you can be assured that you would not regret it!!
