The building is beautiful with courtyards and large staircases, high ceilings. Separate tickets to pay for the gallery and for the temporary exhibition. The exhibits were mostly 19th/20th century Sicilian/Palermitan art, and there was a temporary exhibition (until February 2017) of Steve McCurry's iconic photographs. We visited in November and it was quiet. Worth a visit.

However we did enjoy our visit mainly because... 更多
the gallery is interesting in itself for The very tasteful adaptation of The building. There some wonderful statues, which I think are The most interesting pieces of art in The gallery. Some of The paintings are of absolute value (self-portrait of Guttuso, for example) but everything is very interesting, even The lesser known sicilian artists
