Opened in 1988, the Museum of Archaeology is in the old salt store rooms of the Linguella Medicean Fortresses. Catalogued topographically, you can see Etruscan and Roman remains from all of the Tuscan Archipelago that go from the VIII century BC to the V century AD, clear evidence of the importance of Elba and the other islands in Mediterranean sea commerce.

Remains like amphoras, vases, arms and instruments from shipwrecks, offshore fortresses, necropolis and pleasure villas, tell us of a century old culture that is explained in detail on the educational illustration panelsto be found all over the museum.
