Located on the main floor of the eighteenth-century Palace of the Counts Fossa Mancini, it opened on May 24th 2003.
Visit the palace and have a tour in the various sections of the museum where you can admire the beautiful ceilings (one of which is decorated with festoons in neoclassical style), the entrance hall with stucco and baroque paintings of bucolic Arcadian setting, precious eighteenth-century furniture, a marble coat of arms of the House Fossa Mancini and a fresco of 1528 attributed to Andrea from Jesi and restored in 1998.
The area dedicated to the local ancient religious brotherhoods contains the amazing reconstruction of an altar whose objects belonged to the Tridentine rite.
