Pottery and assorted containers - some in shards, some pieced together - that had been found in archaeological digs in the Milazzo area and that dated from prehistory to the Bronze Age were on display in 9 very well air conditioned rooms. It was rare to find a museum with this concentration of pottery, IMO. I was amazed that there were no displays of coins, jewellery, tools, weapons, etc. belonging to these people - just clay pots. Individual items in the display cases were labelled only in Italian so it was important to read the main information board (English and Italian) in each room which explained the purpose of the display. After reading this board I became very interested in the display as I looked for the changes in pottery construction, design, and decoration described on the board. These changes, the archaeologists concluded, had come about because of contact with other nearby cultures, even those across the Mediterranean Sea, probably through trade. It was also interesting to compare the designs of the pre-history, Stone Age and Bronze Age people. The more recent pots, as one would expect, were highly decorated with lots of dots and zig zag lines. A group of children who had visited the museum, tried their hand at decorating pots in the tradition of those on display and that display was interesting to see too. Additionally, one room showed the burial practices of these ancient people. Admission was free. The museum was cool and modern and was easily found on Via Impallomeni, about 1 block away from Chiesa di san Francesco di Paola. There were no public toilets here. We stayed about 15 minutes as hubby was anxious to get going.
