Since 1881 the Museo Civico Archeologico of Bologna has been located near Piazza Maggiore in the 15th-century Palazzo Galvani, the old “Ospedale della Morte”, part of which was reconstructed in 19th century to accommodate archaeological artefacts and art. These rich collections come from the old University Museum, Pelagio Palagi’s donations and the excavations coducted in Bologna and its environs at the turn of the 20th century. The extraordinary findings that were unearthed during this period made it possible to reconstruct the city’s earliest history, known until then solely through historic sources.
The Museum is consider one of the most important archaeological collection in Italy, and, above all, it recounts the history of the city from the prehistoric age to the Roman era. Its Etruscan section is an excellent starting point for discovering the civilisation of the Po Valley Etruria, the capital of which was the Etruscan city of Felsina.
The collection of antiquities boast masterpieces of Greek and Roman art, and the Egyptian collection is one of the most important in Europe.
