We stumbled on this charming, small museum one hot Sunday morning and were so pleased that we had. They have a small but well-preserved and interesting collection of period clothing that includes examples of both Western and Arabic cultures. My favorite part was the "picture" of every-day life provided by a fascinating display of kitchen tools, furnishings, etc. The docent had better English than my Italian, and was fun and knowledgeable.

loved seeing the different costumes, its not a huge museum so it wont take long to go through but well worth the visit if you like being taken back in time.

The museum of costumes in Scicli is a great choice for those who want to learn more about history of everyday life of local people in Sicily. The guide is very nice and ready to "cover" you with all knowledge she has about the museum and its articles.

Very interesting to see the Sicilian clothing from bygone years. The attendant spoke English and gave the four of us a tour to explain the various clothes and household items. The baby christening gowns and ladies shawls were beautiful. I was surprised to learn that babies used to wear girdles for their posture! My husband really didn't want to go thru the museum but afterwards commented that he really enjoyed the displays.

Fascinating museum showing changes in local dress/cosume at all ages and across different social stratas. €3 to enter (2 if you are old) and you are given a guided tour by the ticket seller (so don't worry if no ticket seller when you seek to enter as she will soon be back). Also a 'museum of cucina' and showing how the peasant farmers lived. Also a fascinatiing introduction to the courting etiquette of yesterday's Sicilians. The guide was brilliant.
