The building is not very large but is full of objects, tools, models and photos that allow us to understand a world, that of boaters, which to us today seems far away but that until the 1960s played a major role in the transport of goods in much of the No. rd Italy. The Museum is the result of the initiative of a former boatman (incredible character and with a lot of interesting stories to listen to) who decided to collect as many artifacts as possible to make known the world of river navigation. It is structured in several thematic rooms located in various floors. It is not very big but you can see immediately that it is cared for and organized with great passion. Especially recommended the guided tour, without which you risk passing in front of many objects without noticing them or without fully understanding their purpose. In my opinion it is a must for those who happen there because it leads us to the (re)discovery of a little-known side of our history. Small initiatives like this one, aimed at the cultural enhancement of the territory, are always laudable. Congratulations!
The owner is a lovely 85 y old man ex captain of a merchant ship who collected all you can see through 40 years of researches, you can see his tough and splendid soul through his voice. I'll share this place to everyone and I hope all the best for this little rare gemstone of history.. (too bad this museum is not promoted how it should be.. so remember to share ;) !!
Unfortunately when we visited on a Sunday we discovered it was only open on Saturdays. Pity. So 3 star reflects our disappointment not the quality of the museum. And in fairness there was a notice saying that it was open on request.
