Fodor's Review

Especially interesting pieces in this small but excellent collection are the examples of prehistoric cave drawings and a marvelously reconstructed Doric frieze from the Greek temple at Selinunte, which reveals the high level of artistic culture attained by the Greek colonists in Sicily some 2,500 years ago. (To enter, use the door around the corner on Via Roma.) At the time of this writing, the museum was closed for extensive renovations, so before journeying over, phone the museum or the tourist information office to check whether it's open.
