Cinque Terre - Museums


Unfortunately the museums of the Cinque Terre listed below are currently closed.

Professionals of the Cinque Terre National Park would like to tell you about the history of the area, centuries of hard work as well as the traditional products, so they have established several museums in the villages.

Entrance to the museums is free with the Cinque Terre Card.


Museo delle Cinque Terre Antiche – Museum of local history

A museum about the origin and history of the Cinque Terre, the everyday life of locals, the real values of the area and why the Cinque Terre has become a UNESCO World Heritage site.


Museo dello Sciacchetrá – Sciacchetrá museum

In this museum, computer presentations, videos, photos and traditional objects will help you understand how this great dessert wine is made, and you can also learn about local life and the hard agricultural work on the terraces.


Antico frantoio – Old olive mill

You can have a look at an old and a new olive press and find out how the olive oil of the Cinque Terre is made.

Museums - Groppo


Centro di salagione delle acciughe – Anchovy salting center

You can learn everything about anchovies and how they get from the sea to your plate. You can also do some tasting and buy a bottle or two. When I visited the center, they had a black and white film on DVD, which showed life in the Cinque Terre in the 1940s. Very interesting, so worth having a look!
