Samnite Museum

The Museo del Sannio (Samnite museum), established in 1873, has a wealth of archaeological treasures. The core of the collection is the important Isis Room, which contains Egyptian and neo-Egyptian finds from Domitian’s temple to Isis. Recently, the Lombard section has been reorganised, and the upstairs section on 13th-19th century art has been revamped. What’s more, new display spaces have been acquired to house artworks from the 19th and 20th centuries. And finally, the Rocca dei Rettori castle is home to the museum’s Renaissance section.
