If one is interested in coins, they have a big collection. Otherwise, the most arresting feature is a group of eight Roman statutes excavated in the area.

In teh combined Palazzo della PIlotta ticket this museum is also included. Small but very valueable artifacts, a lot which was found here in Parma. But there are also other Roman, Greek, Egyptien items.

While visiting the Farnese teatro we visited the exhibition PArmegianino and Correggio Two Parma artists -16 the century and we enjoyed it very much. The museum has a nice collection of triptych + a lovely small drawing by Leonardo da Vinci. Enjoy. Yona S.

The museum is small. It's included in the combined ticket and since it's located in the same complex as the Fornese Theater one might as well see it. It should take no longer than an hour for thorough viewing.

Mostly collections from excavation of this region with a small collection. Of Egyptian artifact. Most exhibits come only with Italian description but worth a visit

Amazingly poor collection of minor things that people happened to find locally. High point was a heavily restored Roman bust of a woman that looked like one in the Disneyland Haunted Mansio.

This museum is focused almost entirely on Northern Italy, but, since there have been people in this part of the world for a long, long time, the subject isn't at all limiting. There are some wonderful sculptures and some really interesting exhibits on early man...More
