SIRMUMA - Museo del Mare


Museums & Galleries in Sicily

Located in the heart of the picturesque island of Ortigia, the historical centre if Syracuse, the SIRMUMA - Museo del Mare holds a vast repertoire of equipment, models and documents that reconstruct the rich memory and the long maritime tradition of the city.

The SIRMUMA is the first and only museum in Sicily and around the southern Mediterranean where the entire chain of naval carpentry has been rebuilt, from the initial design to the final realization of the boats.

The Museum of the Sea tells the long history of Syracuse and what the sea has accounted for it: landscape, memory, craft, culture and tradition.

It houses a priceless tangible and intangible heritage, preserves and exhibits objects, artworks, artifacts, written records, pictures and documents that provide insight into the maritime culture and history of the area.

Entrance fee (2013): € 2,00, reduced tickets for students and children

Other days visits possible on reservation
