Lipari’s archaeological museum: night tours

Lipari’s archaeological museum “Luigi Bernabò Brea” will be open late at night in August 2018.

Each Wednesday in August ( 1, 8, 22 and 29) the museum will be open exceptionally from 8 p.m. until 12 p.m. (last admittance at 11 p.m.).


Architect Rosario Vilardo, recently appointed Director of the museum, has conceived a special project named Nights in Art . The aim of this proposal is to enrich Lipari’s cultural offer, thus giving tourists the possibility to pay a visit to the collections at extended opening hours.

Partner of this project is the Associazione Guide Turistiche Eolie Messina Taormina who will be in charge of guided tours held during late opening hours.

Admittance fees are: 6 Euros for adults, 12 Euros including the guided tour

3 Euros for youngsters between 18 and 25 years of age, 6 Euros including  the guided tour

Free entrance for children under 18

Tours will be held in Italian. Tours in English, French, German, Russian and Spanish are also available. Visits will take place between 8.30 and 10.30 p.m. and must be booked until the day before either calling +39 3292037439 or +39 3498750493 or sending an email to

Lipari’s archaeological museum

Lipari’s archaeological museum - Visite guidate notturne al museo archeologico di lipariThe Museum hosts unique archaeological collections covering millennia of history. From the Neolithic to the Late Bronze Age, from the Classical pavillion including findings which allow a full view on both the Greek and Roman civilization in the Aeolian Islands  like the splendid grave goods from the necropolis ( among them the little theatrical masks, a real enigma for all scholars) to the exciting Underwater Archaeology section, the Museum holds countless treasures of the Aeolian Islands glorious past which is also documented outdoor, in front of the main building. There you will see ruins of Bronze Age huts together with different layers spreading from ancient Greek to Roman times.


The Nights in Art proposal is set at times of the day when a guided tour is even more interesting and fascinating because of the magical nocturnal atmosphere in Lipari’s ancient acropolis.

Since several years, the Associazione Guide Turistiche Eolie Messina Taormina actively cooperates with the Archaeological museum Luigi Brea Bernabò. Every summer this partnership offers twice-a-week guided tours held each Friday at 5.30 p.m. and each Sunday at 10.30 a.m.
