Collection history
The establishment of the Civic Museum of Belluno dates back to 1872, thanks to the donation to the city of the collection of paints belonging to the physician from Belluno Antonio Giampiccoli. Collections of bronze objects, medals, metal plates, coins, seals, manuscripts and and books of local interest beloging to Lord Florio Miari were added to this originary core. The exposition was located in the Palazzo dei Giuristi, built in 1664. The Museum opened to the public in 1876 and, concerning the archaeological section, today it displays also many important finds from recent excavations led by the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici del Veneto (particularly in the Aurignacian site of Campon di Monte Avena and, above all, in the Epigravettian one of Riparo Valbruna in Val Cismon).
