Accessible through Villa Pepoli (a public garden), the very well kept museum is within a 13th century cloister adjacent to Basilica di Maria Santissima Annunziata. Tickets are available on site up to one and half hours before closing time. Visitors are ushered through different halls...More

This is a very strange museum. The collection is interesting and varied with some labelling in Italian and English but the close attention by the museum staff was oppressive. From the moment we entered the first gallery we had a male attendant standing within a...More

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...More

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...More

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...More
