Located near the Roman villa (which belonged to the poet Catullo, according to traditional historical sources) the archaeological museum preserves ancient artefacts that belong to the domus and found during various excavations carried out over time, as well as numerous fragments dating from prehistoric, Roman and medieval ages coming from Sirmione and the surrounding Garda locations. The polychrome mosaic floors, a head of Dioscuri dating from the second century, frescoes and stuccoes of the first century BC and several bronze objects and pottery are all worthy of note. Also interesting to learn, thanks to the photographic evidence present in the museum, are the various stages that have characterised the excavations and restoration involving the archaeological site.
