Fodor's Expert Review Museo del Risorgimento

Castelbuono Historical

This local museum is dedicated to several significant historical periods, with the collection divided into three parts. The first and second floors focus on travel and local folk traditions, with many objects and artifacts donated from a personal collection of a local aristocrat who devoted his life to traveling the world. There is also a selection of local folk art and traditions, including Sicilian marionettes and decorative Sicilian carts from the 19th century. The other sections are dedicated to the period of Italian unification in the late 1800s. Another interesting feature of the museum is the actual building it is housed in, which features a historic bell tower and clock dating back to the 1800s; you can climb up and see the intricate clockwork beautifully maintained by the local town council.
