Museum Varese

Mummies, archaeological finds, design, ancient and contemporary art: museums to suit all tastes!

Museum in Varese, what to see in this treasure trove of culture? The territory harbors several important museums, plus architectural and religious monuments you should see. 

Varese is a garden city with various landmarks. Start your journey with the Archeological Museum of Villa Mirabello, where besides prehistoric and Roman artifacts, you can admire a unique piragua that dates back to 600 AD and a perfectly preserved mummy. 

Afterwards you could head to Isolino Virginia and discover the permanent exhibit of findings that were dug out in the island and are nowadays guarded at the Ponti Cottage. Painting lovers can go to Viale delle cappelle del Sacro Monte and visit the Pogliaghi museum and gaze upon sketches and models by Bernini, Giambologna and Procaccini. 

The Modern and Contemporary Art Museum is located at the premises of the Masnago Castle. Its exhibition route winds up through inspiring frescoed halls that showcase the words of Lombard artists like Hayez, Balla and Pelizza da Volpedo. 

Go to Varese's surrounding towns and villages and find out the remarkable structures that wait for you. The International Pottery Design Museum in Cerro is only one example.
