Zisa - Museum of Islamic Art

Interesting
The Palazzo Zisa, a residence for pleasure and rest built in 1166 for William de Hauteville, is an important point on Palermo's Arab-Norman itinerary and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The palace is home to a collection of artefacts, most of which are Egyptian (Mamluk and Ottoman period) but some come from the Mediterranean Basin. The mashrabiya are particularly worth seeing.
