Museo Archeologico


The Civico Museo Archeologico di Milano (Civic Archaeological Museum of Milan) is housed within a complex which does justice to its current function: the ex-convent of the Monastero Maggiore combined with the church of San Maurizio, founded in the 8th-9th century. The inner cloisters reveal the remains of a Roman dwelling from the 1st-3rd century, as well as a section of the original Milan city walls and a medieval polygonal tower.

The collection covers a wide range of periods, regions and types of objects. From Etruscan statues to coins of ancient Milan (then called Mediolanum), and from Greek vases to golden rings from the Middle Ages.

The Prehistoric and Egyptian sections of the Archaeological Museum are housed in the Castello Sforzesco Museums.
