It even has surgical tools found in the nearby “Surgeon’s House” archaeological site.

Spanning over 3,000 square metres and arranged over forty galleries, the Rimini City Museum has many different collections. Medieval and Renaissance pieces form a large part of its exhibits, mostly comprised of paintings, frescoes and sculptures.
