Museo delle genti d'abruzzo

Museum of the People of Abruzzo

Pescara, Abruzzo


Independent museum of folk traditions and archaeology


Basic information

This young (founded 1973) regional museum aims to help people understand 4000 years of traditional life in Abruzzo. Galleries go back as far as the palaeolithic and there is a distinct lack of Roman 'branding' on the museums website or associated materials.

Mesolithic collections

The museum is linked to local and national archaeology societies but it is impossible to tell the scope of the collections from the website.

Mesolithic presentation

Archaeology is presented in one room covering the Palaeolithic to Medieval periods.
