We came here yesterday and had lots of fun. Children are free (I don't know what the ages are for being free), and adults are 5€ each. Thing first area you go into is full is pottery archaeologists pulled from the sea. It's interesting and you find out what they stored before settling on the sea bed. There's a video... More

To top it off they have an amazing collection of carts. We spent an hour and a half and it was not enough. We went right before closing... More

We went here in May while visiting Terrasini. It is not a large museum but it is packed with local history. We loved the artifacts lifted from the ocean but really enjoyed the exhibition of Sicilian carts. We also had a very, very nice gentleman leap to our aid and guide us through. Our daughter can understand Italian and she... More

When you see these things you start to understand all the culture of Sicilia with its natural colours, way of life and always ask yourself -how can people could make the real piece of art from the simple horse-drawn vehicle..
