Archaeological Museum

Archaeological-Museum.JPGThe Archaeological Museum was inaugurated in the presence of king Victor Emmanuel II in 1870 in the buildings of the Cenacolo di Fuligno on via Faenza. At that time it only comprised Etruscan and Roman remains. As the collections grew, a new site soon became necessary and in 1880 the museum was transferred to its present building.

The museum houses Etruscan, Roman, Greek, and Egyptian collections.The Egyptian section houses the second largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in Italy.

Open Monday 14-19; Tuesday and Thursday 8:30-19; Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 8:30-14
