... by the savvy and witty Michelangelo Balistreri together with his way of singing you through every corner of the museum with local poetry in Sicilian dialect make it all a unique and extraordinary experience.
If you want to visit a museum that is full of fascinating things, that is a lot of fun with an excellent guide, and that will tell you a great deal about the life of the people of Sicily, I strongly urge you to go.

We enjoyed the excellent tour of the museum - examples from hundreds of years of artistry, beautifully illustrating the wide range of people and cultures that have inhabited (and inhabit) Sicily.
The great taste of the owner and the museum’s curators, their love to Sicilian art, history and culture, their attitudes to visitors made my time in Palermo unforgettable!

Took a private tour to this beautiful church in a cave, it’s a steep, nail biting windy road but the views over Palermo are breathtaking.
This is a gorgeous and haunting shrine dug into the mountain cliff on the top of Mount Pellegrino.

Other famous works are the "Wooden Crucifix" by Pietro Ruzzolone 15th-16th century and "Portrait of a Youth" by Antonello Gagini son of Domenico Gagini who sculped "Virgin and Child" in the 1400's.
The collection has some of the best medieval collections I've ever seen, and does a wonderful job showing the transition from Medieval to Renaissance art I've ever seen.

Once in there i sign the log and went to the museum with a very kind lady whom explained every detail of the items at the museum and lead me to various sites within the town were the film was made.
