Civic Museums in Lecco
The Civic Museums of Lecco have more than a century of life, since they were founded in 1900 by three Lecco citizens: the geologist Mario Cermenati, the naturalist Carlo Vercelloni and the archaeologist Antonio Magni.
The first museum in Lecco was the museum of natural sciences hosted in 1927 at Palazzo Belgiojoso, which today represents one of the museums of Si.M.U.L., the Urban Museum System of Lecco, which includes the Historical Museum, inserted in 1933, and the Archaeological Museum added in 2001.
Over the years, the Art Gallery has also become part of the museum system, now hosted in Villa Manzoni, along with the Manzonian Museum, the Palazzo delle Paure, the Viscontea Tower and the Planetarium.
