The Archaeological Museum
Angera, today a beautiful holiday town on the southern side of Lake Maggiore, has the oldest evidence of human presence in the territory of Varese and was formerly an important traffic station along the fluvio-lacuali commercial routes which straddled the Alps.
Archeological excavations have been conducted here since the end of the 19th century, and they have always yielded significant material, carefully collected, studied and displayed to the public in an educational capacity that is updated from year to year. The Archaeological Museum, located in the centre of town, is housed in a beautiful fifteenth century building and collects and displays significant historical and prehistorical objects from the area.
The Museum provides visitors with various publications of local and archaeological interest and is equipped with a lift and toilet facilities for the disabled, an armchair for relaxation and feeding babies, a changing table, and a multifunctional hall for exhibitions, conferences and educational workshops
