Museum of Lake Garda

Lungo Lago Regina Adelaide, 15, 37016, Garda, VR


The Museum of Lake Garda (Museo del Lago di Garda) is located in the borough of Garda, more precisely inside the Palazzetto delle Esposizioni. It assembles finds and materials that testify to the customs and traditions of the Lake Garda area.
From an original collection of objects that tell the stories of historical events, the collection has expanded and was finally turned into a museum in 2011. After a short closure time, it reopened to the public on 1 February 2015.

The museum is situated on two floors, the first of which is dedicated to land, the second to water. On the lower floor, objects and tools from the agricultural sector, the crafts, livestock farming, extraction and folklore are on display; on the upper flow, fishing tools are on show, among them nets, harpoons and hooks.

The Museum of Lake Garda can easily be reached on foot; there is a carpark not too far away. For further information on entrance and guided tours, visitors can consult the website of the city of Garda.
