This is certainly one for historians and metal detectorists. I’ve never seen such an extensive collection of Bronze Age artefacts. It truly is amazing!

Well worth an hour to pop in to see this nice museum set around an attractive cloisters. There are short multi-lingual videos to select and watch but the climax of the museum is the Lavagnone plough which has a room to itself. Apparently the town...More

Good value for money, you could spend 45 minutes here, not all displayed in English, some details displayed in Braille, with tactile exhibits

This is a very interesting and well run museum. We visited on a Friday afternoon and the lady in charge was extremely helpful. You need to check opening times because they are limited. I loved the recreated stilt house.
