The Museum of Ancient Ships in Pisa is preparing to welcome visitors with an extraordinary opening on the occasion of the 'European Night of Museums'. A new opportunity, which will take place on Saturday 14 May, from 8 to 10 p.m., to discover the rooms of the Medicean Arsenals of Pisa, located on the Lungarno Ranieri Simonelli, in an unprecedented scenario. The initiative, which takes place simultaneously throughout Europe, returns to Italy after a two-year stop due to the pandemic and includes evening admission at the symbolic cost of one euro.
The Complex of Ancient Ships in Pisa is the largest museum of ancient ships in existence. With 4700 square metres of exhibition space, it brings together 800 artefacts, exhibited in 47 sections divided into 8 thematic areas, with seven boats from the Roman era, dating between the 3rd century B.C. and the 7th century A.D., four of which are substantially intact. Inaugurated in June 2019 after more than twenty years of research and restoration, the Arsenali Medicei area takes visitors on a real journey through more than a thousand years of the history of the city of Pisa.
Access to the cultural sites no longer requires an enhanced green pass, nor a basic one, while the use of surgical masks is strongly recommended.
