love this museum
Jan. 2018 • Friends
It's small, but cosy and has some real art treasures. You will enjoy the paintings and statues. One hour visit is enough

Not to be missed

If this were in a larger city, there would be queues for tickets. We had the whole thing to ourselves in an air conditioned room for half an hour. Breathtaking and humbling.

A must-see in northern Marche
Jun. 2017 • Couples
We drove for nearly 2 hours to reach Pergola to see these unique Bronzes and the rest of the museum (which includes 3 or 4 other exhibitions such as numismatics and paintings by Marche artists). The gilded bronzes are the highlight though; they are extremely fascinating and the mystery surrounding them makes them even more appealing. They are located in one exhibition room on their own. The written information is in Italian but an English language sheet can be provided. Entry ticket for adults is 6 Euro.
By the way there are other discoveries in this area that connects Pergola with the Etruscan and Umbrian settlements.
If driving Pergola is 33 kms from the Marotta-Mondolfo exit of the A14.

Extraordinary ancient gilded bronze group!
Nov. 2016 • Couples
We made quite a detour to go to Pergola, a small town on the Marche - Umbria border. My husband just said we were going to see some bronzes but since this is what he does, I was happy to go along. The museum is really dull and dark but then you go into this large well lit room and raised on a dais on the other side were two men on horses flanked by two women. Wow! I was amazed! The figures are more or less lifesize. One rider and horse is more complete than the other as is the case with the women. But it is an amazing group. The only other ancient gilded equestrian statue I have seen is the Emperor Marcus Aurelius in the Capitoline Museums in Rome.
There are questions of where they came from and how they were found. There are further questions of who they represent. It looked like an Imperial family group to me but my husband says the facial features do not correspond with known portraits. There is one theory that they stood on top of the triumphal entry gate to Rimini, at the end of the Via Flaminia built by the Emperor Augustus to connect Rome on one side of Italy to Rimini on the other.
Fascinating and well worth the effort of getting there!

Simply Magnificent!
Jun. 2016 • Couples
Having traveled the world for 50 years, we're rarely stunned speechless by seeing something for the first time. We also rarely spend 45 minutes looking at one work of art But we were stunned speechless and looked for 45 minutes at this. An amazing creation and an equally amazing survival story. This art work is simply magnificent and would deserve a place of honor in the world's greatest art galleries in NYC, London, Paris, wherever

impressive statues
Aug. 2015 • Family
These are one of the great ancient history statues that were found back in bronze, next to marcus aurelius in rome and the bronzes in reggio calabria. Impressive really a must to see.

Only, it was not necessary to build a complete museum, filled with low interesting things. Just go straight to the bronzi dorati, they are worth the 6 euro entry fee

Stunning!
Jun. 2015 • Couples
Shortly after WW2 a set of four life sized gilded bronzes were found close to the sleepy little town of Pergola. After they were restored (several decades later) a small, nicely presented museum was created from a former convent to house these quite unique bronzes. In addition to a selection of unexceptional paintings, and some interesting coins, there is a lovely permanent exhibition of work by Walter Valentini, one of the town’s better known residents. All in all, not to be missed if in the general territory.

29 d. C. The only group of gilded bronzes dates back to Ancient Roman times
Mar. 2014 • Friends
The "Bronzi Dorati da Cartoceto di Pergola" is the only group of gilded bronzes in the world dating from Ancient Roman times still in existence. They most likely represent a family group, originally two female figures, cloaked and veiled, and two horsemen in high-ranking military garb with richly ornamented horses.

Nothing quite like this exhibit.
Mar. 2014 • Couples
This exhibit is in a room of it's own, temperature controlled and light censored.
These Life size figures are something to see. Gilded Bronze the horses and riders.
These were found not long ago as a farmer was digging to cultivate his land for planting and building another barn.
What a surprise!!!!!!
This is certainly one exhibit you will never see anywhere else in the world.
