Ligurian Archaeological Museum

Ligurian Archaeological Museum

This museum, located in Villa Pallavicino in Pegli,  is home to the most extensive exhibition of regional archaeology, covering the prehistory and protohistory of Liguria; the Palaeolithic tombs of the caves of Arene Candide; an abundance of artefacts from Genoa's pre-Roman necropolises; excavations of the towns of Roman Liguria; Prince Oddone of Savoy's collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, and two rooms dedicated to the Egyptian collection and to Roman marble.

The Archeology Cave, in the anti-aircraft shelter of the Villa Doria Park, offers schools and groups the opportunity to relive moments of prehistoric life firsthand through workshops and experiments with the archaeologist. Activities by reservation at the Ligurian Archeology Museum.
