The Museum is divided into two sections.
On the first floor are exposed the most significant finds discovered in Caorle and in the neighbouring sites, dating back from the Late Bronze Age (XIII century – first half of XII century b.C.) to the modern age.
You will discover how our town has changed with the passing of time from the protohistory and the Roman age across the centuries.
On the ground floor you can relive the history of the brick Mercurio, a Napoleonic war vessel, sunk during the Battle of Grado on 22nd February 1812.
A video will tell you its story, while a post dedicated to virtual reality will make you feel the emotion of an underwater dive in the area of the wreck; you can touch the stern, rebuilt in full scale, a cannon... and much more!
