Castelnuovo Berardenga
This museum is housed in a late nineteenth century building which, until recently, was an abattoir. The idea behind the museum is to analyse how the world and our perception of the world has changed by showing various different landscapes and how they have altered over the years. There is an archaeological section which was renewed in July 2006.

The museum has a collection of photos, information and documentation concerning the landscape around Siena. The aim of this collection is to raise visitors’ awareness of this rich and varied territory. As well as images and videos which illustrate and explain the history, art and nature of this area, the museum also has several locally found ancient Etruscan artifacts on display.
