Museums lake MaggioreA complete visit of the lake Maggiore lead us to the discovery of museums, monuments and religious buildings.

Among the many museums in the territory of the lake Maggiore, we bring to your attention the Archaeological Museum of Arona, that treasures archaeological finds coming from the territory of the low Verbano, in a wide chronological span that goes from the Age of the Bronze to the Renaissance. Among the protohistorical finds, ceramic materials coming from Arona and Castelletto Ticino and the equipments of the Gallic necropolis discovered in Dormelletto. There are a mould of the wheel from Mercurago (XVII-XIII b.C.)and the important celtic finds of the necropolis of Dormelletto (III-II a.C.). For those who want instead to visit a 'easier' museum, in Angera, in the inside of the famous Rocca, there is a unique museum, first in Italy and among the most historical of Europe, that collects in thirteen halls the two centuries-old history of a toy without time: the doll. Constituted from a first nucleus of dolls of the Borromea collection, it has been magnified in the years until collecting dolls of extra-European countries and dolls in celluloid. Prepared with historical-didactic criterion, it today illustrates the transformation of the ancient toy from 1700, collecting also accessories and dresses, furnitures and other material.
