The Museum preserves natural and archaeological collections, originally housed in the Palazzo Chiericati and transferred in 1991 in the architectural complex formed by two cloisters that flank the church of Santa Corona. It is organized into two complementary sections: the nature presents the reality of the territory, with particular reference to the environmental specificities of the Berici Hills, which represents the geology, flora and fauna of the most characteristic environments. The archeology section documents the presence of man in the district Vicenza from the Paleolithic era Lombard. Of particular interest, the remains of Neolithic and Bronze Age the valleys Fimon; the votive bronze laminae (V - I century BC) found in the heart of the city; the decorations of the Theater of Berga (I century A.D.); the ancient statuary collection gift of Gerolamo Egidio di Velo.
