This museum is a former convent, with cloisters and fountains to enjoy as well as the collections of ancient art. The metopes salvaged from the temples at Selinunte are here, and they alone, are worth a visit.

Charming building, good displays, great restaurants just outside it. Much better to spend time here than the main tourist strips.

One of the oldest museums in Europe, the exhibit held plenty of history and the building itself was beautiful and has its own story post the war. At only 3 euros per person for entry, it was a great way to get out of the...More

This museum is not so big but anyway not so well organised and no indicators. There are few rooms where you can see different impressive objects from Selinunte

One of the best museums in Palermo, thousands of archaeological evidences from different ages. A collection that makes even non-experts able to appreciate. Unforgettable

Really calm atmosphere and stunning displays. Three euros is a bargain as you are able to touch the displays that are over a thousand year old which makes it extra special.
