We visited Museum A. Pepoli on Sunday and intend to see archaeological excavations, but these and other expositions were not accessible. From the interview with the staff we note that this part is closed only on Sunday. But the price was full. So I would like to recommend a visit during the week and ask if all the expositions are open.

Fabulous local museum full of things you won't see elsewhere
Sep 2018 • Friends
For me the highlight was the antique carved coral and ivory objects. Exquisite workmanship to make beautiful and unusual objects - sometimes combined with ivory and mother of pearl to make unusual tableaus - sometimes set in gold to make beautiful jewelry. Also included in religious artefacts wuch as monstrances, altar cloths and tabernacles. Completely deserted when we visited on a September week-day. €6pp - well worth it

some very unique objects
Nov 2017
Museum in the same courtyard as the church (Via Conte Agostino Pepoli with a bus stop next to it; like buses 23/25 from the old centre)
some very unique objects , like the cribs and rural scenes made by local craftsmen, the jewels with precious stones and coral,an enormous silver decorpiece...
But very unfriendly lady at the desk
TAKE CARE: -The Trapani Welcome card does NOT give any reduction to this museum
- Museum open at noon but not the church witt the famous Trapani Madonna which opens only in the morning (be lucky if there's not a mass or a wedding going on) and again after 4 pm. So,try to visit the museum first ( you'll need approx 1,30 to 2 hours) and then go to the church.
-not a lot of terraces to have drink (only 1 on Sundays) in the immediate area

Very interesting museum
Oct 2017 • Solo
It would be a pity to lose this museum, which has a variety of exhibits, best of which is a proper guillotine which was used in Trapani. Very impressive. Other treasures, paintings and coral make this museum a pleasant attraction. Tuesday should have been a full day opening, according to their website, but I was told that the museum closed at 1.00pm, on Tuesdays. Not even the GPS could find the entrance, but with the help of locals I entered a public garden and found it.

You don't expect to find a working guillotine here!
Sep 2017 • Friends
A fascinating museum. There are statues, a fabulous staircase, jewels, curios and the coral work is jar dropping. I found this museum just kept giving unexpected displays. There is a carriage and just past that (and the loo) a fully working guillotine! It was only used twice apparently. I say only but for the two quite a life changing event. Next door there is beautiful church. Our party waited till the end of the service and then walked around the back to see teh famous statue. Good Sunday attraction but watch out for opening times.

The museum is a masterpiece. The room of Gagini was the most attractive pieces in this museum, Even, the painting, the wooden pieces, and the silver and madreperla!! GREAT!

staff lazy and sour faced
Jun 2016 • Friends
was here once before and really enjoyed it. took the trip from my apartment at the historic centre, all the way to here and paid entrance for 4 people. the staff could have told us that more than half of the museum was closed for refurbishment, but they didnt. we were very disappointed as i was planning to show my colleagues what i had seen earlier on a year and a half before. at least there should have been a price reduction OR the least the staff could do was to inform us that the museum is more than half unavailable to leave it to our prerogative to choose whether to pay and enter or not.

Superb exhibits
May 2016 • Friends
There is a very diverse selection of exhibits from paintings to coral. The coral exhibits are superb and worth a visit in themselves. The guillotine is also very memorable! The artworks are well displayed and I don't usually like art galleries but they have some very important and beautiful pictures here by Brueghel and Caravaggio. Worth spending half a day.

Collection Worth the Visit
Aug 2015 • Friends
The Pepoli Museo has fascinating collections of red coral jewlery, hand carved nativities, painted tiles and pottery, etc. We missed the archeological collections from Segesta and other ancient sites, but still found much of interest. My personal favorites were the intricate nativities made with red coral and shells in a kind of grotto style.

Well worth visiting
Jul 2015 • Solo
Went today to the museum. It's worth visiting. It is easy enough to get to using the 25 or 28 bus. The building is a very old 13/14the century building and was a convent. The gardens around the museum are really rather lovely and kept well. The treasures inside are wonderful and well presented. Ceramics, coral jewellery and carvings, clothing from the rococo period, pieces of ornate and grand furniture, sculptures and some absolutely stunning paintings. Some very large pieces and some very old pieces dating to 14th century. The guides of the museum stick closely by ..
