Overview
More
The Museum Ignazio Cerio owes its origins to the untiring efforts of Doctor Ignazio Cerio, an Island physician, who constituted it as a family museum towards the middle of the XIX century, but was formally established as a public museum in 1949. The museum consists in 4 rooms: the geology and palaeontology room, the prehistoric and protohistoric room, the zoology and botany room and the archaeology room with over 20.000 naturalistic and archaeological finds which were gathered by Ignazio Cerio on Capri.

I'm sure that this is a fascinating if old-style natural history museum but for a linguistically impaired person such as myself, I didn't get as much out if it as a local would. Still I was perfectly happy to pay the modest entry fee to...More

There's a fabulous view of the piazzetta from the upper-storey windows, but it's quite a climb up steep stairs to get there. Otherwise, the museum covers most of the areas you would expect, but is dominated by geology and natural history - what Cerio himself...More

The musuem was fascinating with the geological, historical and biological exhibits. Most of the exhibit descriptions are in Italian, although you are given a leaflet in English when you pay your entrance fee.
