Collection history
The archaeological collection that can be seen in the museum has been accomplished almost exclusively thanks to the underwater discoveries accomplished by the San Marco Diving Club of Venice in the southern area of the Venetian Lagoon over the last twenty years. The Civic Museum was inaugurated and opened to the general public in 1997.
