  • Small but interesting collections ranging from the bronze age to late Antiquity, very nice plastic wood with what at the time was Maximian's Mediolanum, the external path allows you to see the ancient walls, one of the octagonal towers and the Tower of the "carceres" of the ancient Bell Tower of the adjacent convent circus today. Stratospheric diatretra Cup perfectly preserved and indicative of luxury offices in Milan, only this piece is worth visiting the archaeological museum.

  • The Museum is not huge, but it presents a beautiful collection on different historical periods. The tour is divided into sections. The walls are magnificent and mistresses and evenings have something spetrale.

  • Located in the heart of milano romana, is a beautiful archaeological museum with valuable collections including that of fascinating exhibits of Gandhara, authentic Roman and Eastern World Union, where the statues have both Western connotations of Buddhist art. To visit.

  • The little museum is a nice change from the bustling city and has some nicely preserved samples from times long gone. For 5€ just go there and enjoy one or two hours of archeology, depending on your level of interest. You can also sit and relax in the yard while looking at the ruins there.
  • Decent museum for the history of milan and a surprisingly good collection of Etruscan artifacts. Well worth a visit
  • Beautiful archeological museum! Explore the history and development of Milan throughout the centuries! There are few very interactive panels where you can follow the lives of Milanese in time! Being one of the city's museums, the entrance is free every first Sunday of the month so do not miss your chance!

  • Interesting museum with a range of artifacts.
