1. History

The impetus of the museum arose in the 19th century and centered around the Ancient inscriptions that had been collected in the town hall. After the suppression of many of the religious institutions, the collection was enriched with many works of art, exhibited since 1865 in the halls of the Convent of SantAgostino of Rieti. Since 1909, they were exhibited here in the town hall. The collection includes works of art from Zanino di Pietro, Luca di Tomme, Antoniazzo Romano, and Antonino Calcagnadoro. In addition, it has a large local archeologic collection.
