The new Archaeological Museum (inaugurated in 2009) is located in the deconsecrated Basilica of San Lorenzo and in the annexed 15th century Cappella Meli. The Romanesque church of San Lorenzo stands on the ruins of an older church, dated to the tenth century, that was built on the area of an early Christian funerary building and a necropolis of Roman Republican age. The museum is an archaeological site of which the remains are still largely visible.
What you will see
The museum exhibits the most significant part of the Cremonese archaeological collections. It gives us the chance to reconstruct the image of the city founded by the Romans in 218 BC (the oldest city in the territory to north of the Po) thanks to the findings of the nineteenth century and the recent excavations in Piazza Marconi. Included in the experience is a virtual visit to the Domus del Ninfeo.
