  • The Museum is located in a historic building is located in a part of the ancient Citadel, residence of the Princes Appiani and of Princess Elisa Baciocchi, Napoleon's sister. This is the new Palace (including the old stables and lodgings of the Court of Appiani) which before as Museum, was used as social housing, as public security barracks and gave the seat to a vocational school. The restoration project was signed by engineers and architects Pier Luigi Cervellati, John Maffei Goldfinches and Alberto Mamma. The Museum aims to illustrate the history of the territory and use of its resources, including in particular mining. The materials are dated from prehistoric times to the Etruscans (tombs from the necropolis of Populonia) and Roman.

  • We visited the Archaeological Museum of Piombino as a logical consequence after the visit of the Archaeological Park of Baratti. Beautiful power observe the objects found in the necropolises that we had visited before. A lot of very interesting pieces of prehistoric, Etruscan and Roman period. Splendid and suggestive reconstructions of tombs Etruscans, Etruscan banquet or a Roman wreck. The Museum that is perfect for children, with several objects to touch and interactive terminals. Children are under the spell of this trip in antiquity. I highly recommend visiting this Museum in family, and after visiting the cemeteries of Baratti, to better enjoy the exhibits. For francophones: at the reception a perfectly bilingual French lady.

  • Interesting, I had read that was interactive and anything there is thought more. The cases are not very bright.

  • Quite some history. A small but decent museum.
  • Very well maintained. Rich in history. Friendliness of the staff. Lately is incentivized visits involving children so families with activities (lectures, creating carnival masks ... Of course "themed" Etruscan!).

  • Populonia "Fuflun" one of the few seaside town and not on the heights to the iron mines of Elba and for ovens and tons of ferrous material yet to exploit found on the beach of Baratti, what remains of the tombs of Populonia in Piombino Museum, still very interesting is the silver amphora of Baratti.
