Overview
More
The Museum was born in 1904. Its first bulk of materials consisted of local finds, collected during more than 150 years by the noble Bocchi family. In 1972 it then became a National Museum. The present-day location, recently enlarged and renewed, offers an exposition area of more than 1200 square meters. The exhibition trail shows the extraordinary ancient history of the Lower Polesine and Adria, an harbour town born in the VI century BC next to a branch of the Po delta. The Adriatic Sea owes its name to Adria. Of particular importance are the Greek pottery and the precious funerary goods, among which are Attic vessels, Etruscan bronzes of late archaic and classic age, and refined Roman glasses.

OK, clearly this isn't the Louvre or the British Museum. But Adria is a town of just 20,000 people. The care that locals must have taken in preparing the exhibition in chronological order, explaining the exhibits, never mind piecing together pieces of shattered pottery, is...More

The finds of the Imperial Roman are wonderful, with coloured glasswares that could rival the very best of Murano art. The finds of Attic pottery and of Etruscan jewerly have the perfection of finesse. The roman keys are incredibly similar to the ones of nowadays....More

One of the best museums I have been to recently. The quality of the archaeological findings and the way they are presented through a colour-coded chronological order is excellent. It is learned but not too academic in a way that it is accessible to everyone;...More

A must if you are into history and want to discover the best of Etruscan art. Close to the city centre, the museum is quite stunning!
