Home to a historical museum, Museo di Santa Giulia was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2011. After ancient remains were discovered on the grounds, the monastery was converted into a museum for the artifacts' display. View Roman houses that were excavated from beneath the orchard, as well as Bronze Age artifacts that were scattered around the area.

  • One of the most ancient museum I had ever been to. Most of the things I saw dated back to 70 AD. Very interesting and worth visiting.
  • Excellent; spectacular frescoes. Not crowded at all.
  • This museum is made on a 12 century monastery and describes the its history. Also, this is the history museum of the city of Brescia.
  • Amazing collection and especially the location
  • This museum is a must see, a walk in time more than 20 centuries long!
