The Archaeological Civic Museum of Casteggio and Oltrepo Pavese was born in 1974 by the will of a group of enthusiasts, following the discovery of two Roman tombs in the city center. Thanks to the acquisition of new finds, donations made by private individuals and the excavation campaigns of the Archaeological Superintendence of Lombardy, the Museum was enlarged in 1988. In 1999, following the restoration of Palazzo Certosa, the Museum was transferred and further enlarged. The Museum houses a rich variety of archaeological finds: geological, paleontological, prehistoric, protohistoric, Roman, late antique and medieval. In addition, there is a section that houses the materials donated by private citizens to the Municipality of Casteggio. They are objects from Oltrepo Pavese and partly from Central and Southern Italy. The Museum is at the forefront for educational activities and seminars focused on archaeological dissemination that take up all the most important historical stages of ancient civilization.
