  • It is a new, modern multi storey museum, currently on the ground floor there are some very interesting findings between small jewels, fragments and the particular grave of lovers

  • Before you go to this museum I had visited some of the most important national archaeological museums (Rome, Bologna, etc). Already the order (or disorder) which exposes the exhibits makes me, personally, turn up their noses: not chronological but topics. Personally I prefer the pure chronological. Very nice exhibit of "Lovers of Valdarno", that alone is worth the visit. On the upper floors there were a photographic exhibition on the Georgics (carina) and one of the Austrian painter Jorrit Tornquist, which, apart from a few canvases, I did not like at all.

  • This small museum, which tells the story of the city and the territory of Mantua from prehistory to the early Middle Ages, was recently renovated and expanded. The environment was made nice and bright but is still of an old design, with captions written and no media. Totally missing maps to help locate sites where the remains were found, which are often mentioned in the captions. Unfortunately the lighting design of salt with the exhibits is progressing slowly and then the upper floors are not yet used. The exhibits are nothing out of the ordinary, with the exception of so-called "Lovers of Valdaro": it is a couple buried in place embraced, rare and unique feature in a burial from the Neolithic period. Given the proximity to the Doge's Palace and the time required rather brief, it may be interesting to a quick visit to admire Valdaro lovers.

  • 1. The floor of the Palazzo della Pilotta, often goes unnoticed; not very extensive, harvest, is worth a visit not hasty. I report the Egyptian collection (sarcophagi and cat Mummy), Greek and Etruscan ceramics (vases), Roman statuary and the prehistoric section (artifacts and finds from the necropolis of Parma). Bgt cumulative input with the National Gallery and the Farnese theatre.

  • Located inside the pilotta near the teatro Farnese, this Museum really tiny, I was surprised, especially for the Egyptian collection. Of course has a few pieces, but extremely interesting as the collection m of beetles seal (although on loan), or as some sarcophagi and utensils from ancient Egypt. Interesting is also the story of parma, the origin of the city passed from the Etruscans to the Gauls and the Romans, relived through utensils coins etc. and finally the part with the first settlements of the city from the prehistoric bronze age to the iron age. The first floor is in sharp contrast with the second, the latter even though explained in a detailed enough in Italian, is rather antiquated than the first, but anyway well done. Only notes, as in every little Italian Museum, is the lack of staff, which would not that much, if it wasn't the come literally haunted by a keeper! Apart from that, it's a decent Museum, I recommend a visit. The full price is 4 euro, reduced for children under the 25 years is 2 euros and free for children under 18 and the students of certain faculties like architecture.

  • I really appreciated the substantial employment boards and infographics that give meaning to everything that exists. It is a bit small so it's well worth the combined ticket of € 10 with the theatre and the Gallery, especially as they have everything inside the Pilotta. The kindness of the staff.

  • Excellent Archaeological Museum, little one, because not all rooms accessible works, staff a bit on her, but inside are preserved masterpieces. Great pre-proto-rich section of descriptions, to be treated a little better, as construction and educational, the Roman and Egyptian civilizations.
