The museum is in the historic Palazzo Tori Massoni, built at the end of the XVI century by the Orsucci, an important family of Camaiore, upon an earlier building.
The definitive set up of the exhibition has not yet been completed: it will be on the upper floor of the palazzo. The didactic section in two rooms on the ground floor is, instead, open to visitors.
An 'introduction to the museum' section is being prepared and will explain to visitors archaeological methodologies and the contribution of science in the reconstruction of ancient environments.
The section on human evolution will receive particular attention in the light of the most recent discoveries in the field of palaeo-anthropology.
Since a few years the Museum is working on three particular sites with regular excavation campaigns: the prehistoric settlement of Grotta dell'Onda, the Roman farm of Acquarella and the Medieval settlement of Montecastrense.
From Monday to Friday 9:00 - 13:00
