EUR 3.00 (also with access to the Museo Civico di Scienze Naturali, next to it.) Nice, little museum, with very informative displays, also written in English. I especially liked the section about the origins of seeds and other foods, from prehistory to more recent times. One can easily spend two very pleasant, educational hours wandering through its exhibits.

This is a well organized modern museum. There is a nicely displayed rich collection of artifacts. Many animals are shown, with an opportunity for the hands on experience of touching them. It is a great place for children, there is also a very good video explaining the water system in Bergamo.

This museum is mostly quantity over quality, and not very interactive and lacks depths.... More

This is a good well presented museum that tells the story of early Bergamo with some interesting archaeological finds. Each room had a laminated card to explain the more interesting items in English. I was particularly impressed with the presentation of the items particularly the Roman finds. There is even a small Roman mosaic. If you have a Bergamo Card... More
