The Civic Museum of Crema and Cremasco is housed in the former convent of Sant'Agostino, founded in 1439. The Museum develops around the two Renaissance-style cloisters and a wing of the second cloister houses the refectory frescoed in 1507 by the painter Pietro from Cemmo. The Museum was born in 1959, on an administrative level, but in 1963 it was officially inaugurated. The Museum was created with the aim of transmitting the history of the city and the territory, but it was also a point of reference for the Cremaschi over the centuries. The permanent collection is made up of several sections: archaeological, historical, artistic and a small musical and ethnographic one. The archaeological section is composed of numerous finds from different eras from the Paleolithic to the Bronze Age up to the Roman and Lombard age. In particular, the Roman and Lombard collections were enriched thanks to the findings in the area. The historical section collects documents, relics and objects from the Middle Ages up to a very important nucleus constituted by the revolutionary era and the unification of Italy. The artistic section is mostly composed of pictorial paintings and the works of modern and contemporary art by Cremaschi artists such as Carlo Urbino, Vincenzo Civerchio and Camilla Marazzi are preserved. Other artists such as Gaetano Previati, Bronzino and Domenico Induno are part of the collection.
