About
The starting point for the history of the Museum is due to the activity of two very different persons: canon Giandomenico Bertoli (1676-1763) and Lepoldo Zuccolo (1761-1833), a painter from Udine. Bertoli collected finds that are still the core of...more

Doesn't cost much and is something to see if you are visiting the basilica. Has quite a bit of ancient Roman ruins and pieces. Not crowded and you can stroll leisurely.

I hadn't realised how important Aquileia was in the Roman era. This museum has superb remains of life when this city thrived. Well set out and explained on the inside with a mass of stone ruins outside. It again reminds us of how much the...More

Portraits of Palmyra in Aquileia marks a sympathetic step in ancient ruins destroyed. We are happy we saw the Roman ruins in photographs

A well laid out museum tracing the development and changes in the area from pre Roman times onward. Well signed in both Italian and English. The glass and other trade goods were excellent. Well worth a visit.

This museum wasn’t the primary reason for our visit to Aquileia but after our visit - it could have been. Yes, the early Christian mosaics in the Basilica are impressive but if you wish to see mosaic craftsmanship – at its magnificent “Imperial Age” best...More

No visit to the historical centre of Aquileia is complete without time spent here. Even though it is only a small part of the Friulli region's collection of historic objects, the size and range of items on display is difficult to take in. A added...More
