An archaeological museum of some interest
Feb 2016 • Couples
The precarious hilltop site of Polizzi Generosa has been occupied for at least 2500 years, as evidenced by the town's interesting, but under-promoted Museo Civico Archeologico, located beneath the Town Hall on the main street, Via Garibaldi. The museum contains some interesting relics from the period, found in the necropolis above the town. These date from the period when several Grecian states were established on Sicily and regularly battled the Carthagians. There are some lovely re-constructed Greek vases and lots of other household goods from that period. The big drawback of the museum, like much else in Sicily, is that all the captions and interpretations are in Italian.

Well worth exploring

My B&B hostess recommended a visit, and I'm glad I followed her advice. I'm not an archeologist, but I thought the display of artifacts recovered in the area of Polizzi Generosa was impressive and beautifully presented. It's a lovely facility. The highlight is a vessel at the end depicting a battle between Hercules and a lion, and other scenes. The tour guide was enthusiastic and helpful. If your Italian isn't good, I recommend that you read about the displays online before you go.
