You are done in ten minutes. Not worth the price of admission. An old palace with very little to do with the history of the area.

Response from MuDiPa, Responsabile relazioni pubbliche at Museo Diocesano di Palermo (Le Stanze dei Vescovi)
Responded Oct 11, 2019
Gentile visitatore, siamo spiacenti che il museo non le sia piaciuto. Comprendiamo che avendo visitato 17 sale museali in 10 minuti lei non sia stato capace di comprendere la ricchezza e l’importanza delle opere esposte. Difatti il Palazzo Arcivescovile è strettamente legato alla Cattedrale e alla storia della città, le sue decorazioni pittoriche dal XV al XIX secolo sono di notevole interesse, e le opere d’arte esposte dall’epoca normanna (XII secolo) fino al XIX secolo provengono dalle chiese della città e ne illustrano la magnificenza. Speriamo che ci sarà un'altra occasione per riflettere meglio sul museo e sul suo legame con la città.

If you are interested in beautiful art that has been beautifully preserved, then this is the place for you. It was a standout in Palermo and away from the increasing tourist throng. It is a beautiful, beautiful gallery and worth the trip. Worth much more than the entrance price suggests.

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.
