Wow! My jaw dropped every time I walked into a room. Stunning area of urns, tools, masks, jewelry. Great, detailed signage (in at least 3 languages), including English.
Beautiful views, church.
I visited from Panarea (easy 40 minutes journey because Lonely Planet mentions the museum/citadel...More
We visited the Castle's museum this morning, 650 meters up from our Marine Lunga apartment, following the signs along the main streets.
After paying our 6 Euros each, we were on our own, so we walked the grounds to take in the sunny views. Along...More
Just a short walk from the boat terminal is this treasure of a museum! We had no idea what to expect...we were absolutely amazed to find artifacts from prehistoric times.. Greek masks, pottery, and crowns just to name a few. Be sure to arrive early,...More
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!

It was wonderful to find this excellent museum in a small town, on a small island, yet full of treasures found nearby. It is spread over several buildings and one has to go to the bottom of the hill to purchase tickets (Euro 6.00) then...More

As far as I know there are no museums on Lipari or exhibits of recent history and culture. I know there is also no such information in Milazzo the jumping off point for the Aeolian Islands. You will have to search for a Risorgimento type museum to get some of that information. Other than that if your Italian is good enough you could ask at the churches to see if they have suitable records - birth/deaths/marriages.
There is a large cemetery on Lipari but we did not visit it.
