Messina is an elongated "sickle-shaped" city and the museum is in its northern section, We found parking among the residents north of the museum.The muuseum is in a beautifully restoed building with fine grounds and a courtyard that have scattered archeological pieces decoratively placed. The art collection is locally derived witha few superb items by such as Antonello (of course!) and Caravaggio (who hid out here) Regrettably they did not permit camera of any sort and did not have books or cards for sale.We expected to hve a minimal visit but it turned out thaat thebeautiful people (i.e. rich) of Messina were having a gala and they stayed open for them(we were not dressed for the occasion but we looked foreign and elderly so-- (the attendants snickered to us about it). Since I have no picture I include a view of the sickle coastline of the city(The museum is one block inland).
Address: Up the Viale della Liberta 3km from the Duomo.
Directions: I think there were signs. You would not see it from the road since it is uphill and hidden.
