Fodor's Review

Several interesting pieces are displayed in this small but excellent collection, including 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. There are also lion's head water spouts from 480 BC, as well as other excavated pieces from around Sicily, including Taormina and Agrigento. Though currently only the ground floor of the museum is open after extensive renovations, other floors will include archaeological materials that explain the history of the island starting in prehistoric times.
