Inside a building that fully reflects the nature of its being, the museum, the first of its kind in Elba, was opened in 1968 to give a home to the remains that came to light thanks to the excavation campaigns in all of Elba in that period.
The collection consists of many remains from the area of Marciana above all, and are all catalogued topographically on the base of where they were found: there are remains of lithic works from the Stone age, Etruscan remains from the offshore fortress of Monte Castello in Procchio, others from the shipwreck of the Roman vessel known as Procchio I, from Monte Giove and Madonna del Monte, decorations from interment tombs from Monte Capanne, and, from more recent times, equipment and items of a shipwreck possibly of the XVIII century.
