Since its foundation in 1968 the Museum has been housed at Palazzo Moroni in the Piazza del Duomo of Pietrasanta.
On the outside the building has a double flight of stairs and is among the most remarkable in town both from a historical/architectural point of view and for its public role.
It was created in the XVII century combining two previous buildings to house the Monte dei Pegni, the Chancellery and the assembly hall. In the middle of the XIXth century the building was renovated and remained town hall until the Second World War; afterwards it became seat of the town library, the communal Record Office and the Archaeological Museum.
Since 1998 the Museum has been closed to the public for repair and renovation works. In spring 1999 finds from the exhibition and storage rooms were transferred to the archaeological depot in Via Marconi n.5 where a small exhibition of Roman items can at present be visited.
