We visited the recently upgraded Museo and it is a truly wonderful experience now examining these unusual ancient artefacts. The museum has been thoughtfully designed considering its' location and contents. The walk up through the 'Centro Storico' is wonderful. There is lift access also now...More

This museum of primitive stone statues going back to 2000-4000 BC is an eye-opener, well presented in the well-preserved castle with beautiful views. The videos, most available through Bluetooth headphones, provide information on early man and his culture, as well as the story of how...More

What a great little museum. The video (available in English) gives context and the statues are well displayed. Entry to the castle is also included in the price and offers wonderful views over the town.

I absolutely loved it here. The castle which serves as the museum is so atmospheric and the stele are placed perfectly for maximum impact. They provide headsets for translation of the video presentations into both English and French. The visit has encouraged me to find...More

Castle rooms contain many fascinating individually carved stone statues which are dramatically lit. They date from 3000 BC and are unique to this region. Interesting films in English. Castle has good views from the battlements. Combined entry fee for castle and statue exhibition represents good...More

Very nice and well-kept museum, which goes a long way explaining the origin, history and meaning of the steles found in the area. We enjoyed walking around, both inside the museum and outside in the small castle. Spent around an hour there. Quite a nice...More

We rather ambitiously went with a 3 year old and a 5 year old. We only spent 30 minutes in the museum so it was just a quick glance at the statues really. The statues did interest them a little, the 5 year old boy...More

My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable morning here. An earlier review talks about the lack of bilingual displays. The museum has clearly attended to this. Headphones were given to us that gave a simultaneous translation of the video displays, and there were English...More

Interesting and intruiging museum. Statuse 5000 Years Old from unknown civilisation looking like astronauts. Worth of visiting as well as castle and the view.

This museum shows and explains these extraordinary flat statues which speak to us still from thousands of years ago. Their simple designs tell you the sex of the person commemorated, the warriors have daggers. They are local to Lunigiana, and are displayed inside the massive...More
