Visiting the Archaeological Museum you will experience the suggestion of accessing to a Roman Domus, a rare testimony of the housing structures of the 2nd century BC city. The new Domus was discovered during the renovation works inside the courtyard of Palazzo Zuccari, between via Ruggero Manna and via Colletta.
The set-up, accompanied by educational equipment for visually impaired and blind, respects the same arrangement found in the excavation, thus offering visitors the suggestion of access to a Roman house.
Opened in 2009, the Archaeological Museum is now located in the church of San Lorenzo, which belonged to the Benedictines and later to the Olivetans and was unrecognized at the end of the 18th century. The excavations carried out since 1962 have allowed unearthing the remains of a previous church of the first century BC, this transformed the church into an archaeological site itself.
In the museum, the archaeological collections of Cremona are exposed which give back the image of the origins of the city.
Founded by the Romans in 218 BC, and flourishing until the year 69 AD, the year of its devastation after the events of internal war, Cremona was later rebuilt in the III century AD; these events are described by the approximately 500 objects exhibited according to a thematic path divided into three sections: the public space, the private space, and the necropolis.
Among the most valuable means - the terracotta statue from via Plasio and the complex of mosaics from the Domus found in via Cadolini in the 50s.
