The Appennino Pistoiese People’s Museum, spotlighting industry and daily life, is located in what was once the local elementary school. The building has been completely renovated and the museum is currently part of the ‘Daily Life Tour’ organized by the Eco-museum of the Pistoia Mountains. Visitors can catch a glimpse of various artifacts and objects that bear witness to the traditions that characterize rural communities in the Pistoia Mountains.

After its restoration, the building was opened to the public on June 22, 1997. Thanks to images, stories, music and historical evidence, museum guests can go back in time and understand more about the people that have populated the Apennine area from modern times until today. It is organized according to various themes including the area’s industrial origins and its industries like coal mining and wood-cutting. It also hosts interesting exhibitions focusing on holidays and religious traditions.
