National Archaeological Museum of Aquileia


National Archaeological Museum of Aquileia

It tells the story of Aquileia and showcases its archaeological collection, exploring the ancient Roman metropolis. It documents its cosmopolitan character through inscriptions, portraits, statues, and artifacts.

A Mediterranean port and a gateway to the Mediterranean for about seven centuries: Aquileia has an extraordinary history, illustrated at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale (National Archaeological Museum) in a modern exhibition tour inaugurated in 2018.

The exhibition layout highlights the extensive and varied archaeological collection of Aquileia, collected over two centuries of excavations and discoveries but, above all, it accompanies visitors to discover the ancient Roman metropolis, its daily life and its production and trading activities. It is precisely trade relations that brought people to Aquileia from all areas of the Mediterranean, giving it its exceptional cosmopolitan, multi-religious and multilingual character, documented at the Museum with inscriptions, funerary stelae, portraits, statues of various gods and artefacts of various origin in common use.
