I was here a few years ago - the museum has many interesting findings of the Finale and Ligurian area, concerning mainly pre-historical settlements.

Found by accident on an early morning walk, I was thrilled to go back and spend a full morning exploring, and understanding the great history that surrounds this place. With some archeological work dating back to 181BC I was thrilled to find and explore the location. Outstanding presentation.…

As an archaeology student I always enjoy visiting a museum when I get the chance to see what museums decide to put on display and how they present their information. The museum in Finale Ligure is one of the best ones I have visited to date. On display they have items ranging from Neanderthal occupation right up to historic times with a heavy focus on the prehistoric. This is due, in part, to the numerous sites in the region that have been well excavated and documented. Because of these excavations and recovered artifacts the museum is able to show a well documented history for the region. The museum is also equipped with numerous touch screens that provide information on the displays as well as interactive puzzles and games to learn more about the region and its history. What I like the most is the display that shows a recreation of the Young Prince burial at the cave site Arene Candide and dates to 23,500 BP. In the display the curators have shown the position of the bones, the items the young individual had in his hands, and the fantastic shell headdress he was buried with. It was awesome to see such a complex display in person after previously seeing photos from the excavation of the burial. I highly recommend visiting the museum if you want to get away from the beach for half a day and do some great learning.…
