The museum is housed in city hall. The collection documents the history of the area.

For example, the Ligurian material found at the Gello jetty, a Ligurian tomb rediscovered in 1974 in Piano della Rocca, remains of fauna and Etruscan and Ligurian clay fragments which date back to the 6th to 3rd century AD discovered inside the Gioviano cave in 1974. The human remains found in the grotto in Pastino dating back to the High Middle Ages. The painting gallery houses the reconstruction of wild and domestic animals from the local fauna and a mineral collection. It is geared towards students so that the children can get to know the area's ancient history.
