  The new sector open in 2010 display the old and famous collection of coins and medals, created in the fifties, by Luigi Bernabò Brea. From the original numismatic core of the nineteenth century and thanks to the constant research and protection on the territory, it was created an unique collection of coins of Greek Sicily from archaic age to the medieval.
A series of important private collections, donated or purchased, complete exposure. A part of the sector is dedicated to jewellery and the collection include pieces dating from the prehistoric to modern age, illustrating the changing of techniques, tastes and fashions throughout the centuries.
A series of grants has allowed the Museum to implement guided itineraries of the area with the aid of maps and tactile itinerary, reproductions in thermoformed panels and a guide in Braille.
