The Vittorio Emanuele Orlando Risorgimento Museum is located on the ground floor of the 14th-century cloister of the Church of San Domenico, the headquarters of the Sicilian Society of National History. The museum is an exhibition space dedicated to the Risorgimento, the Unification of Italy and Giuseppe Garibaldi's exploits in Sicily, told through paintings, portraits, prints, medals and sculptures of the period. The exhibition rooms include the Great Hall, the Crispi Room, dedicated to the member of parliament, and the Meli Room. Among the most important exhibits in the museum are one of the original tricolour flags belonging to the steamship Lombardo, which participated, together with Piedmont, in the Expedition of the Thousand, and an original cannon, including bullets of the time, which was used in 1820 during the uprisings in Sicily.
