The Archaeological Museum at the Roman Theatre was opened in 1924 in the former monastery of Gesuati, which was built in the late 14th century behind the theatre. The exposition is set out on different terraces, as well as in the monastery itself; it contains material from the theatre, from Verona and its hinterland, and from collections acquired over time. The Archaeological Museum at the Roman Theatre, in one of the most attractive and archaeologically important locations in Verona, is an excellent example of a city museum.
Collection history
The first archaeological excavations of the Roman theatre were carried out in the first half of the Nineteen century by Andrea Monga; the work was finished by the Verona Council, which acquired the land in 1904 and rebuilt part of the ancient structures. The archaeological collections of the Verona Council remained at the civic Museum of Porta Vittoria (now Natural History Museum) till to the birth of the Archaeological Museum at the Roman Theatre. The current exhibition combines parts equipped during last century and zones recently reset and opened to the public.
