This museum, first founded in 1910, was moved to the quarter of the Kalsa in 2006. It is next door to a Franciscan convent and the Church of Sant'Anna la Misericordia. This historical quarter dates back to the 15th-century, but is now considered to be one of Palermo’s most cutting edge cultural institutions.
Explore the museum's permanent collections containing more than two hundred paintings and sculptures. These are organised into 14 thematic collections that show the evolution of Italian figurative art between the 19th and 20th-centuries. The museum also has a library, historical archive rooms for temporary exhibitions and a café.
