Patrimony and Archive consultation


The patrimony of the Civic Museum of Modena extends well beyond the exhibition halls to the collections and archives located in storage, including administrative documents and correspondence about scientific and research activity starting from the founding of the Museum, the Archive and library of the Risorgimento Museum and historical photographic records.


The patrimony and archives are accessible for research and study purposes. The request, explained in writing, must also include any request for copies of documents and must be addressed to Museum management.

For more information: 059 203 3101


Also available online are the data sheets of some of the Museum’s works and artifacts in the Catalogue of Cultural Heritage of Emilia-Romagna. Catalogo del Patrimonio culturale dell’Emilia-Romagna


The consultation of some groups of material may be subject to restrictions due to preservative constraints. Access to archaeological finds belonging to the state must be authorized in advance by the Soprintendenza Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio per la città metropolitan di Bologna e le province di Modena, Reggio Emilia e Ferrara (Superintendence Archaeology Fine Arts and Landscape for the city of Bologna and the provinces of Modena, Reggio Emilia and Ferrara).
