Museo archivio della memoria

The Historical Museum Archive in Massa Carrara

A collection of objects from the collection of the municipal administration that chronicles the history of the area

The museum is located in the civic culture building (which was the ex-chancellery of Florence), built in the 1700s. The additional services offered at the museum (like the multimedia room and other exhibition rooms) are located in the nearby late 16th-century Palazzo del Consiglio, in Piazza Roma.
The museum is the cardinal point of the park, and the exhibition space is spread out over several different rooms. Items in the collection (like maps, objects and historical documents) are organized chronologically and chronicle the main historical events in the Massa Carrara territory. Thematic itineraries explore the local economy, religious faith, the local rural culture of the 1900s and the emigrant flux that left the area in the early 1900s.
The oral tradition and oral histories are showcased in the museum and frequently inspire the temporary exhibitions held there.
