The Ethno-anthropological Museum of Savoca is located near the Church of San Michele Arcangelo and was opened in 2001. The building was built on the ruins of the Renaissance palace of the Trischitta family. The purpose was to give a new place to a permanent exhibition on peasant civilization, which had been set up in the Town Hall in 1984. The second floor illustrates some cycles of work related to the peasant world, such as those of the woodcutter, the shepherd or the baker. There are various tools and implements on display, as well as proverbs in the Sicilian language, and it is also possible to listen to some ancient folk songs. On the second floor of the Ethno-anthropological Museum of Savoca, the history of the village from the Middle Ages is reconstructed. There are exhibits of manuscripts, portraits, costumes and maps, and there is also a section dedicated to the noble families of Savoca.
