I believe the possibility to see the unique Greek statue "Giovane di Mozia" ("Young of Mozie") inside the Whitaker museum is alone worth the trip to Mozia. Add the rest of the collection inside the museum, the wonderful natural setting, the importante of the Phoenician...More

One of the Stagnone island where phoenician ruins are in the archaeological park. A nice and small museum with an ancient kouros statue. Wonderful sunset.

We had a great walk around the island and the museum is worth a visit. It’s quiet this time of year so not many other tourist making it a tranquil experience.

Short boat trip into the world of an ancient Phoenician island city. Amazingly much still recognisable. Museum has some remarkable treasures found locally including the 'Young Man' statue found on the island.

We visited the island with our own guide and enjoyed it very much. So much history! The artifacts displayed in the small museum are impressive.

Incredible ruins so well preserved--the Whitaker Museum is small, but filled with incredible artifacts dating back to Phoenician times. Must see--the statue, Youth of Mozia and the mask. One can walk around the island to see the excavation sites or relax under the shade of...More

We viewed the salt pans on the mainland and then took a small ferry over to the island. The museum, although fairly small, held a lot of artefacts that had been discovered on the island. An Englishman devoted his life (and money) to the archaeological...More
