The Archaeological Museum reconstructs the history of the town in an exhibition which enhances the archaeological findings dating back from the periods ranging between prehistory and the late Roman age, with ceramic, bronze and stone artefacts. The museum layout shows the importance of the commercial role of the port and of the town over the centuries. Particularly interesting findings, among those distributed on the different floors of the museum, are that of a boat full of amphoras and the underwater findings of bronzes  dating back to the 2nd century,  fallen overboard during naval transportation. Also the large section dedicated to statues and epigrahs, and, below the external porch, a series of capitals decorated with figures of Romanesque times, coming from a Benedictine Abbey of Norman times, are also included in the visit.
