“Fascinating piece of history”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum in inland Sicily. It is in an old monastery and houses some fascinating ancient finds. The most famous piece is the Goddess of Morgantina (a nearby archaeological site). Statues like the Dea of Morgantina are interesting because they are multimedia - skin is marble, clothes are stone and hair would have been clay, but that usually gets broken during the course of history.
I don't remember much English-language information.
