The Museo Civico Archeologico (Archaeological Civic Museum), one of the city's most prestigious institutions, is located in the 15th century Palazzo Galvani, located in the city centre, just a few steps from Piazza Maggiore.
Opened to the public in 1881, it is mostly known for its Egyptian collection, the third largest in Italy and among the most important in Europe. Its Roman, Greek and Etruscan-Italic sections are also well-stocked - the latter constitutes the most important part of the Museum and documents the development of Felsina. There is also a newly-refurbished Gallery of plaster casts, the Gallic section and one of the main numismatic collections in Italy.
