This museum has so much to see and one moves through various buildings to see all the exhibits. The entrance fee is very reasonable and one is taken from prehistoric times to roman ruins and see alll kinds of interesting remnants of Como's colourful past.

Extensive collection of objects from local archaeological digs, from Neolithic times forward. Lots about smelting metals, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, even a small section on the Neanderthals, and a reference to the Hittites who were actually the first to smelt steel! There's also...More
