The Archeological Museum

The museum gathers artifacts from the area of San Miniato

Via Ser Ridolfo, 18

The museum is located in the Loggiati di San Domenico complex, which was built over a period of several centuries. It was used as an oil mill until it was turned into a museum in the spring of 2000. It documents the ancient history of the San Miniato area, from the prehistoric to the medieval eras, as well as that of the San Genesio hamlet. Located along the Via Francigena, San Genesio was destroyed in the mid-13th century. Before being moved to their current location, the artifacts were on display in the Palazzo Comunale in San Miniato. Since 2000, the Archeological Museum has been part of the urban museum network.
