The Museum is located in the center of the beautiful S. Pellegrino, medieval district full of small squares, alleyways, of profferli, arches and towers preserved perfectly in their thirteenth century aspect, in a wonderful atmosphere.

The exhibition is spread over two floors, in the entrance hall on the ground floor we can admire 10 scale models of various Macchine di S.Rosa transported into the past, they are exhibited in chronological order from the oldest extant, the 1690 models after referring to the twentieth century up to the present "Wings of Light" and porter designed by architect Raffaele Ascenzi.

On the first floor there is the audiovisual room where you can attend the screening of films related transport and recent past so he can re-create in visitors the same suggestion and emotion that this spectacular event gives rise to thousands who flock the evening of September 3 all along the way.

The transportation of Macchina of Santa Rosa has recently become "Cultural Heritage of UNESCO"
