If you are interested about the local area's history this is the place to visit. They have very informative videos at the beginning of the visit and these give you a good idea of what life was like in the Roman villa and for the early lake dwellers. The museum which is on two floors is well laid out and packed with interesting artefacts. The majority of the exhibits have an English translation which helped us get more from the visit. The oldest plough in the world has its own room and exhibit case. I thought the construction of a lake dwellers home was helpful in my understanding of how they managed to live on the lake.
The receptionist although she couldn't speak much English made us feel very welcome and went out of her way to ensure we made the most of our visit. She told us about the combined ticket with the castle which we visited later. Worth the entrance fee.

An intersting display of the history of civilisation around Lake Garda, some well thought out and interesting others a bit odd.
Nonetheless a good bit of history and what is said to be the oldest plough in the world. A reasonable way to spend an hour or so.
There is public parking right outside.

A very nice exhibit of local finds with explanations in multiple languages (German, English, Italian).

We are fascinated by the history of the places we go to and this little museum added to our understanding of the region. Apart from the artefacts we watched the film of the area and of the Roman Villa up the road which we had seen from the outside perimeter the day before.

It is interesting to see how life evolved around this area through time even before the Roman colonisation.

The plough is obviously fascinating as it is the earliest one ever discovered and it has its own room.

I really recommend the loos! Very clean.

An interesting place to visit, unfortunately most information boards were in Italian so I’m sure I missed much of it

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!

This is a nice small museum. If you are in Desenzano and looking for something to do it will pass the time for you in a nice air conditioned building. The staff are very friendly- you can buy a ticket to cover this museum and the castle and save a few euros. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit unless you are a big fan of ploughs as the 'world's oldest plough' is the star attraction..

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 is very proud of it so probably wise not to make and disparaging comments while you are there.

It depends what you like, but if you would find an extensive exhibition about the Bronze Age people living on Lake Garda interesting, I recommend a visit.
We spent a lot longer in there than we expected as there was so much to see. We knew next to nothing about that period in this part of Italy and found it fascinating. Not everything was in English but plenty of the information was.

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