This was my best museum visit. The set up is elegant and a lot of room and discoveries to do. It is worth the small fees required. Highly suggesting you to take time to visit.

We spent a wonderful 1.5 hours here enjoying the gorgeous building itself including sympathetic modern additions, as well as the sculpture, paintings and amazing carriages and textiles, an absolute delight.

We liked this museum, but some might not like it if they are not happy with a collection of Church art of the 15th c. The collection of church art is very good, and most of it is local to Sicily and to Syracuse. The...More

In case you feel like a bit of culture, you might enter to admire small altars of the region, gothic masterpieces. To be done in a bit less than 2h.
