  • The visit to this museum includes various sections, divided into halls, some of which are housed inside Palazzo Giovio, while others are located in Palazzo Olginati (XV century). Beautiful collections ranging from prehistoric age to Roman, with finds found in the territory or other eras and cultures (for example Greek and Egyptian objects, vases, coins, amulets and a sarcophagus that preserves inside a mummy). Continuing the visit, in the Palazzo Olginati you can see rooms dedicated to Garibaldi with war and personal items, memorabilia related to the Risorgimento uprisings and the wars of 900. In the portico and along the staircase of the museum there are tombstones and coats of arms adorning the noble palaces of Como. From here you can access the garden, where the nymphaeum is visible with a wide staircase and statues. The visit to the museum is not guided, it costs 4 euros and, to see everything well, it takes at least a couple of hours. Deserves to be visited.

  • I absolutely loved it here. Went with my family on holiday and there was so many interesting rooms.
  • Nice pieces and displayed well. Some of the info was only available in Italian.
