Sistema Museale di Ateneo
Welcome to SiMuA (Sistema Museale di Ateneo), the network of Museums and Collections of the University of Palermo
The University of Palermo preserves a rich highly valuable heritage, very important from archaeological, historical, artistic and scientific interest. Its historical buildings of great value, chapels, paintings, museums and the botanical garden are regularly open to the public or can be visited on request. The University of Palermo has instituted the Service Centre "Sistema Museale di Ateneo" (SiMuA) to improve the valorization of its cultural heritage.
Its Museums and Collections tell together the history of this University, but also the history of the whole Sicily. The SiMuA, established in 2017 and housed inside the Botanical Garden, aims to valorize, preserve and improve this great heritage, but above all to promote its most interesting and notable aspects, contributing to spread knowledge about them.
