National Archaeological Museum of Civitavecchia

The inscription above the door tells us that Civitavecchia’s national archaeological museum, a few steps from Forte Michelangelo, is housed in an eighteenth century building built by Pope Clement XIII.

The museum, set up in the 1970s, houses exhibits from the former civic museum. The main historical and archaeological evidence from the town that Emperor Trajan founded as a port of Rome is on display. These include finds from the local area, both from the coast, and Monti della Tolfa.

The National Archaeological Museum in Civitavecchia currently presents a two-story itinerary, with evidence from the territory, coastal sites and neighboring areas, such as Santa Marinella, Allumiere and Tolfa.
On the ground floor, among the most interesting finds, you can admire the statue of the god Apollo/Helios (1st-2nd century AD), considered a reproduction of the Colossus of Rhodes.

A reproduction of Phidias' Athena Parthenos is particularly significant.
