Museo Sannitico

The Samnite Museum, the oldest museum institution in the Molise region, is currently located in the historic center of Campobasso near the palace that once belonged to the noble Neapolitan Mazzarotta family. Inaugurated on September 24th 1882, after various vicissitudes, during the Second World War most of the material was stolen and only 560 pieces were saved from the original patrimony. Reopened in 1995, the museum houses much of the regional archaeological collection, set up according to an exhibition itinerary based on chronological and thematic criteria. The exhibited materials, coming from excavation activities and archaeological research carried out on the entire Molise territory, offer a significant overview not only of the domestic, religious and funerary culture of the Samnite communities, but also of the Roman and medieval testimonies, such as the very rich tombs of Bulgarian knights found in the Plain of Bojano. The Sannitico Museum therefore intends to tell the millennial history of these places, favoring their knowledge through an inclusive and multimedia experience.
