Often overlooked in favour of the Cathedral across the road, the archdiocesan museum is in fact a real treasure house of paintings and interior architecture covering centuries of Palermo's history. A must-see if you are in that part of the city.

This is really good if you are interested in the history of Sicily. The new layout is good and was very cool on a hot September day. The cafe and shop were very good.
