Summer Guided Tours to the Town's Museums

Summer Guided Tours to the Town's Museums

Starting from Friday the 19th of June and for the entire Summer period, the Pictures' Gallery, the Natural History Museum and  the Archaeological Museum will organize a program of guided tours.
Thanks to these appointments, which will take place in the three museums on Friday, Saturday and Sunday till the end of August, the visitors will discover different art- works, themes and curious aspects that are generally unknown.  The initiative is destined both to the tourists who are starting to visit again the museums and to Cremona's citizens who will have the opportunity to visit the museums in different moments,  listening to new stories.  
If you want to participate to the meetings you need a reservation. The groups must be made up of maximum 10 people and the visits are free  (you must only pay the entrance ticket for the Picture's Gallery and the Archaeological Museum, while the Natural History Museum is always free). For the Museum of Folk Culture “Il Cambonino Vecchio” there is always the possibility to reserve a visit on demand.
