Superb, comprehensive museum set in several buildings within the walled hilltop citadel of Lipari. Above all else the incomparable collection of greek masks is without parallel anywhere in the world. The collections are expertly displayed and you will be fascinated. Just go!

I walked up the sloped streets from the harbor of Lipari to the archaeological park mainly for the view, but I was rewarded with some fine archaeological information of this island as well as the entire collection of the seven Eolie islands.
