  • knowing about the new staging of some salt I took the opportunity to return to the Museum of Alba, already seen previously with both free visit that at the end of one of the tour of "Dawn", which provide different paths citizens whose final destination is always this. I find it really beautiful. Unfortunately, while being in the main street but I struggled to find it. the truffle fair the penalizes decidedly, even according to the same staff who run it. First, it is difficult to park in this period due to the high influx of tourists. on Saturday I found however less than 1 km away in the parking lot of Miroglio. from there walk approximately 5 minute son. Once arrived in Via Vittorio Emanuele-better known as the Via Maestra-was a bit difficult to find the entrance. normally mackerel is at this time blocked by panels that show very well the fair but absolutely nothing to the Museum. failing to get to the bottom of the complex where I can be the entrance I came in out of desperation in the library, thinking he could enter from there. not really ... son had to drop out, incredibly pass planters made like a barrier that did not allow to switch-over there is the Pavilion of the fair and therefore cannot be accessed from outside of the arcade-and eventually reach the desired gateway located at the bottom of the courtyard of the monastery, on the right. to exit I a moment lost but then I managed to gain the release. It is possible in a city as famous for the truffle and it attracts so many people for at least one month per year does not promote and indeed almost discouraging the approaching a structure like that?! so sorry. even for those who work there that you see so little valued. to this I add that several people flocked to the Museum ... but to use the bathrooms. actual visitors I've had I think less than 10 in 3 hours on Saturday afternoon. at a time of such tourists I think is really little ... the staff are delightful and introduces to the visit, which takes place freely. 22 are currently equipped rooms, divided between the most conspicuous is the archaeological paleontological 2 recently set up and 4 for natural sciences. It starts with an introductory room where you can read the biographies of most scholars 3 briefly contributed to the birth of the Museum. 2 very small exhibit showcases artifacts from the nuragica one of 3 and some items that belonged to Eusebius. the most significant finding of the Museum is exhibited in this room: this is a stele whose discovery in late 800 initiated the Museum collection. the second room is occupied by 4 showcases exhibiting herbarium specimens owned by the Museum. on the left you will find the newly opened rooms where 10 2 panels contextualize the findings and explain the exhibits animals exposed. in 5 showcases are the remains of a blue whale lived 8 million years ago and two elephants lived 5 and 2 million years ago, found in the territory of Alba. the panels are really well made, simple and interesting, as well as those of the archaeological section. Unfortunately they are only in Italian. the few visitors that I bumped into spoke French. Maybe at least at this time of the fair could set up also in foreign languages ... returning to the Herbarium continue right where it starts the archaeological route, which runs between ground floor and first floor. It starts with Neolithic to move to an area where there is a beautiful prehistoric hut, continue with playing a collective burial and Tomb of the Warrior, an individual's burial, the display cases dedicated to finds from the age of metals and finishes the plan with an excavation showing a sudden Roman sewer, an underground tomb and a beautiful gravestone. going up is already in full Roman. you enter the room to the right and you can see about twenty finds and inscriptions concerning public housing. There is also a portion of the floor of the Roman Theatre. We then find the section on private building, with parts of plaster and artifacts from two houses. 3 small rooms display in showcases oil lamps, unguentaria and probes, a collection of 50 coins including a fake, amphorae, millstones and kitchen ware. the second room is dedicated to burials, with a dozen urns and a small pair of reconstructions of tombs in the center of the room. in 5 showcases exposes the objects found in the tombs. the section concludes with a corridor where funerary inscriptions are exhibited, roof tiles with their stamps and some parts of statues. It all comes with 48 boards. apparently many are actually so well made that really deserve some attention. are quick to read and very simple. currently close to La scala exposes 7 panels that speak of an excavation that are building in a place from Val d'Aosta. really well done! Although there is no exhibits found them effective to help people understand the work that the Faculty of Archeology of Turin is pursuing. the latest 3 rooms are dedicated to the natural sciences. Here the level drops significantly. the explanations are brief but a bit chaotic, out of paper hang tags shortly. However they are fast to read. the first room is dedicated to a fine collection of minerals. on the left, past a tent, you can see about twenty minerals that suitably enlightened are fluorescent. If the particular light is seen as completely change! in the Windows on the walls you can see shells and fossils. the second room, the most beautiful, exposes birds, mammals and insects in Central caskets but unfortunately it does not work the light and it is a bit difficult to see them well. Too bad. the latest is dedicated to plants. in the Windows show the different types of cards Central succinct leaves, fruits and roots while the side walls you can see the most common species of the surrounding area and synthetic explanations of what are rocks, what is the underbrush, and little more. on display are two sections of logs that are visible the rings and arrows show historical events successes during the life of the tree at a particular ring. fascinating!! on the ground floor and on the first floor there are the services, very well kept. the visit takes about 3 hours, if you read everything. It is open Tuesday through Friday from 15 to 18, Saturdays from 14 to 19 and Sundays and holidays from 10 to 13 and from 14 to 19. during the exhibition remains open until 19.30. tickets cost €3, free with Museum subscription. is included in your ticket underground and there are facilities for dawn who presents the ticket of the truffle fair. absolutely recommend a visit!

  • Definitely worth a visit the main city museum that allows you to get an idea limited and easy on almost eight thousand year history of Alba and its region. Prehistoric archaeology, Roman Archaeology and natural sciences are the three sections that divided the exposure. You visit every day from 15 to 18 except Mondays, Sunday also from 10 to 13. Entrance €3, free for those who participate in the tour "Sunrise".
