Mining Museum

Venue showcases art and history linked to local mining culture

Massa Marittima
The museum is housed in the fifteenth century Palazzetto delle Armi (Weapons Palace). It was completely remodeled in 2001 according to modern criteria and in accordance with educational purposes.

Its interesting exhibitions spotlight the history of mining by featuring work tools, drawings, photographic materials, minerals, cartographic maps and archeological remains found in the Massa Marittima area from the Middle Ages to the present day. Since 2005, this museum has been home to an info-point help-desk sponsored by the Archeological and Technological Park of the Colline Metallifere Grossetane.
