Castle rooms contain many fascinating individually carved stone statues which are dramatically lit. They date from 3000 BC and are unique to this region. Interesting films in English. Castle has good views from the battlements. Combined entry fee for castle and statue exhibition represents good...More

Very nice and well-kept museum, which goes a long way explaining the origin, history and meaning of the steles found in the area. We enjoyed walking around, both inside the museum and outside in the small castle. Spent around an hour there. Quite a nice...More

We rather ambitiously went with a 3 year old and a 5 year old. We only spent 30 minutes in the museum so it was just a quick glance at the statues really. The statues did interest them a little, the 5 year old boy...More

This museum shows and explains these extraordinary flat statues which speak to us still from thousands of years ago. Their simple designs tell you the sex of the person commemorated, the warriors have daggers. They are local to Lunigiana, and are displayed inside the massive...More

This Museum of Menhir Statues has been recently re-located to the Piagnaro Castle in town, and the location and organization of the museum are really wonderful. Plan to spend about 2 hours to give yourself time to look at the Menhir Statues and listen to...More

Interesting museum but lack of alternative languages to italian made it difficult for us to get the most from it. Worth a look to see the steles and visit the castle after. Could have done with a bar nearby in the heat so take drinks!
