The Rimini City Museum is situated close to the church built by Jesuits between 1719 and 1740 in honor of St. Francis Xavier. In 1773, with the abolition of the Jesuits order, the "College" went to the Episcopal seminary that was sold in 1796 to Dominicans: also this order was revoked a few months later. From 1797 to 1977 was... More

Although most people are attracted mostly by the long sandy beaches and all night discos perhaps fewer appreciate the quality of the art treasures in this city. After visiting the recently opened excavations in the city centre featuring the house of the surgeon I was astounded by the number and qualities of the exhibits in this museum especially the mosaics...

By far the most culturally interesting place to visit in this city. We went to the house of the surgeon to see the beautiful mosaics, still in situ after 2000 years. Then in the museum we saw the recreated rooms that these floors demonstrate. Brought the history to life in a simple but elegant way. Much better than lying on... More

Full of history, full of art! The house of the surgeon which is just a few meters away from the the museum itself is a sure place to visit if you are interested in the ancient history of science.

The one thing I wanted to see on my trip to Italy was Roman mosaics. I had read that Ravenna had lots, and then saw on Tripadvisor that there were some here at the City Museum. "Some" is an understatement, there were tons of mosaics and the surgeons house is just incredible! You can see the mosaics on the floors... More

This museum covers ancient discoveries, art, and history. It really has it all and is well planned. They do close for a long lunch in the middle of the day, but stay open later in the evening. Plan your visit before lunch or after 2:30pm.

Rimini (1) THE PLACE WHERE THE EUROPE RESTED. MY TRIP TO EARLY SPRING I came for the first time in Rimini in April.

Staff were very helpful, if not somewhat directive in what route to take through the museum; it did prove to be the best way to see all in a short time.
