Sicily's "Museum of the Landing"

The Museo Storico dello Sbarco is dedicated to WWII history and the Allies landing in Sicily in 1943. Anyone interested in the Italian war experience will find this museum and its air raid shelter quite fascinating.

The museum contains a large archive of photographs and videos. There are also many wartime relics that are showcased in interesting displays. When visiting the museum, you'll see lots of wax figures that bring the soldiers' experience to life. The museum is only a twenty minute walk from the center of town so it makes a great morning or afternoon excursion.
