Where the ancient territory of Populonia talks to us
The Archaeological Museum of the Territory of Populonia is an extraordinary window on the history of the ancient city-state of Populonia; from the Palaeolithic to the Late Antiquity, with special focus on the Etruscans and Romans.
Of the main attractions of Piombino, the Museum is the natural completion of the visit to the Archaeological Park of Baratti and Populonia.
The exhibition covers three floors of the historic Palazzo Nuovo and it hosts more than 2,000 Prehistoric, Etruscan and Roman finds in 1800 sq m.
Full-scale reconstructions of landscapes and ancient environments, multimedia and musical itineraries, videos and installations make the visit educational and accessible to all.
The ancient Amphora of Baratti, silver masterpiece found in the sea and symbol of both the Museum and the territory of the Val di Cornia, is a must-see.
