The museum contains an exceptional collection, compiled over a period of two centuries.

Items on display include household furnishings, decorative pieces, coins, gems, and statues.

  • Old mansion converted into modern museum. Ok, maybe it lacks some multimedia and more advanced presentation of it's treasures, but all in all definitely worthy to see and absorb.

  • Amazing collection of anticquites including absolutely superb mosaics, sculptures and curved pictures-miniatures on gemmas. Exposition are located in three floors building and big yard and one hour is not enough to overlook all details.
  • The museum has had a makeover recently and the set-up is neat, take it from an archi student. Every object is presented in a way that valorizes it perfectly, also there is plenty of plaques explaining every aspect of what's showcased, both historical and of matter info. I personally don't know the price of tickets but it's free for art history/architecture students, and there's a pass called "FVG Card Aquileia" that for the price of 15€ gives you access to the Basilica and the two cripts, the baptistery and two other mosaic exposition.
