Interesting museum on a very pretty island. We were only there for an hour. Arrived by boat from Marsala, surrounded by salt flats. Well worth a visit to learn about the English couple who lived there 150 years ago and who started the museum.

The archaeoelogical site of Mozia is fascinating and the quality of the artefacts on display in the Museum exceptional. One small quibble: for a foundation set up by an Englishman, surely some more captions could have been in English?

A lovely little museum of Phoenician artifacts housed in John Whitaker's former villa on the San Pantaleo Island. A very short boat ride from the mainland, this island has several archeological sites to view in addition to the collection in the museum. Be sure to...More
