This review is for the museum only; the associated archaeological park doesn't really exist. The museum contained great artifacts. The remains of the Punic warship were displayed in a great manner. I think this is a not-to-be-missed destination on a visit to Marsala.

The Museo Archeologico Baglio Anselmi provides some great insights into the lives, artwork and technology of the ancient Carthaginians (Punics), Greeks, and Roman from around 600BC through to the 500AD. It is made up of several halls of beautifully presented artefacts of all shapes and...More
