Visit Museums And Archeological Parks In Sicily For Free


From Sunday 3 April, Sicily offers free entrance every first Sunday of the month to the archaeological parks, museums and places of culture that depend on the Department of Cultural Heritage of the Sicilian Region.

This was ordered by the regional councilor for cultural heritage and Sicilian identity, Alberto Samonà, joining the initiative of the Ministry of Culture. “It is necessary to bring visitors closer to places of art and beauty – underlines the councilor Alberto Samonà – because culture is medicine of the soul and teaches to live according to universal values.

Sicily, with the wealth of art of its museums, and the unique evidence, between history and nature, of its archaeological parks, is the guardian of this beauty. Furthermore, allowing free entrance every first Sunday of the month also favors the possibility for families to spend their free time in our places of culture and this is a further positive effect”. As a result of the new anti-Covid rules in force since April 1, no reinforced green-pass or basic green-pass is required for entry. The obligation to wear a mask remains.
