Many ingots of lead and numerous amphorae as well as other pottery are on disply on the second floor and the first floor shows models of the ship and its hull. This is an extraordinary find which reveals much about life in Roman times.

There are some very rare items on display in a well set out museum. The only issue is that the boat isn't there - not even a replica. Nevertheless, worth a visit for some of the artefacts recovered.

This small museum made the most of the discovery of a Roman commercial vessel that sank near Comacchio 100 BC. Well worth a visit to complete your stroll through Comacchio.

a huge fund of information in several languages, great displays and models. It will be complete when the actual boat is fully restored and on display.
