The local Archeological Museum of the Mugello and the Val di Sieve in Dicomano is housed inside the town hall and documents the origins of the territory through archeological and historical objects coming from the Mugello, Upper Mugello and Val di Sieve.

Artefacts and the results of excavations carried out at the Etruscan sites of San Martino in Frascole, near Dicomano, Poggio Colla in Vicchio and “I Monti” in San Piero a Sieve are on display.

The Pinacoteca conserves prehistoric artefacts found in the territory of Palazzuolo sul Senio, the municipality of Barberino di Mugello (Lake Bilancino), Dicomano and other towns, as well as other medieval and Renaissance materials from Borgo San Lorenzo, Cafaggiolo and Barberino di Mugello and from San Martino in Frascole.

The museum also has a didactic room with the panels “Ogni cosa al suo tempo e Scrivi in Etrusco” (“Everything in its own time and Write in Etruscan”), where the youngest visitors can learn about archeology.
