The archaeological museum of Marsala is housed in an old winery on the coast, the Baglio Anselmi. In the central part the remains of a punic ship are on display. Other rooms contain finds from the archaeological site of Lilibeo, the town of the punic-roman period. Part of the excavations are adiacent to the museum, the area of Capo Boeo, and can be visited as well.

Museo Archeologico Baglio Anselmi

The archaeological museum of Marsala is housed in the old building of the Baglio Anselmi, on the cape of what once was known as Lilibaeum. The Baglio Anselmi was one of the wineries that produced the world famous Marsala. The museum exhibits a punic warship of the mid-third century BC, found in 1971 near the lagoons of Marsala. It is unique in that it still has the original phoenician signs of the carpenters on each single part which made it possible to assemble a ship like this in a short time. Next to the ship there is a fine collection of punic and roman archaeological finds from the excavations at Marsala. The museum may be small but worthwhile a visit if you are interested in ancient seafaring.
