This splendid, wheelchair-accessible museum has been undergoing renovations since 2010, with no dependable reopening date in sight. Situated in a Renaissance monastery surrounding a gracious courtyard, it houses some of Sicily's most valuable Greek and Roman artefacts, including the museum's crown jewel, a series of original decorative friezes from the temples at Selinunte.

Other important finds on display here include a Phoenician sarcophagus from the 5th century BC, Greek carvings from Himera, the Hellenistic Ariete di Bronzo di Siracusa (Bronze Ram of Syracuse), Etruscan mirrors and the largest collection of ancient anchors in the world.
