Polo Museale Santa Chiara – eclectic museum complex

  • Polo Museale Santa Chiara – eclectic museum complex

    The former convent of Santa Chiara is now home to several museums. These are relatively minor museums, curiosities of sorts, but still worthwhile. The Museo Archeologico (Archaeological Museum) displays Etruscan and Roman finds, including bronze figurines and vivid mosaic tiles. Nearby, the Spezieria di Santa Fina is home to partially reconstructed pharmacy dating from the 15th-century. On display are ceramic-and-glass vessels designed for herbal remedies and healing lotions and potions. Upstairs, the Galleria d’Arte Moderna (Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art) features works by Italian artists. One combined ticket allows access to all museums.
