Piazza delle Armi - Palazzetto delle Armi
The exhibition is divided into four rooms with excellent educational panels. On display are objects and tools used by miners in the area (e.g. lunch-baskets, miner’s lamps, helmets, shoes), measurement tools for mine construction and a rich collection of minerals from the territory of Massa, as well as many other objects, tools and scale-models related to the life in the mines and a wooden reconstruction of an extraction well. This is an educational museum that, together with that of the Mining Museum, illustrates a particularly important aspect of the history of Massa Marittima and life in the Massa region. Also on offer are guided tours and various educational activities.
A visit to the Mining Art and History Museum is included in the module of educational activities entitled "The Miner", provided by the Colline Metallifere Cooperative, which runs the Massa Marittima museums, for local schools (consult the programme on the website www.coopcollinemetallifere.it).
