“A very interesting collection of ancient theatre masks”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The museum contains very interesting exhibits and is well organised. Above all it is worth admiring a collection of replicas in small scale (5-10 cm long) of masks from the ancient Greek Theatre. Full of expressions and symbolism these masks would be worn by the actors and would allow spectators to recognise the character before he/she would utter a word! Also don't miss excellent vases and Tanagraia statuettes. Check working hours.

“Great exhibits....a good use of a couple of hours”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Don't miss this if you visit Lipari. The exhibits are superb, varied and imaginatively displayed. You could whizz round in an hour....it's on that scale, but if your into antiquity there are some amazing exhibits and it's easy to lose yourself for at least 2 hours.

“Great views and history”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

Neat place to stop as there is wonderful history in this museum and walking the grounds gives you some of the coolest views on the island. Take a morning, hike up to this museum and walk through it.

“A must!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

This has to be the most amazing museum I have ever visited.

The most complete collection of all things Roman/Greek. Its fascinating. Do pay the money and give yourself at least an hour to visit all the sites that you entry ticket gives you access to.

Do not miss out on this. Nothing on the mainland compares to it.
