Museo Archeologico di Mergozzo

The Archaeological Museum of Mergozzo, born as an Antiquarium in 1969, established as a Civic Museum in 2004 and renovated in 2018, offers a journey through time from Prehistory to the Middle Ages, exhibiting finds from all over the Verbano Cusio Ossola area.
The prehistoric evidence, exhibited on the first floor, dates back to the end of the Stone Age and the Bronze Age: it is mostly lithic industry from Mergozzo, alongside materials from other locations (Baceno, Baveno, Crodo, Cesara , Omegna, Brovello Carpugnino, Verbania ...), among which the bronze dagger of the Passo dell'Arbola stands out. The early Iron Age is documented by a warrior burial from Montecrestese, while the late Iron Age is represented by the outfits of the necropolis of Carcegna and the territory of Crodo.
The Roman age is presented on the second floor, through materials coming from the numerous excavations carried out in Mergozzo, which allow us to grasp both the funeral costumes and some aspects of everyday life, cults and ancient production techniques. The route ends with the finds from the late ancient tombs (4th-5th century AD) of Carcegna and the early medieval ones from San Giovanni in Montorfano, opening a glance at the end of the ancient world and the Christianization of the area.
 
The path is enriched by tactile workstations, for a multisensory approach, and multimedia insertions, which open a virtual view of the whole territory.
