Cute museum in old town, great place to learn about Abruzzo people and culture. The photo display of the faces of Abruzzo was very interesting.

Beautifully presented, interesting and set in the old part of Pescara. Not far from Gabrielle d'Annunzio's House. A feast of architecture and art in the area.

You can find various artifacts of early settlers and some reconstructions of what life was like in Abruzzo until a few decades ago. Unless you have something better to do, I would skip this one.

This is nice to visit as you have all the history of the people of Abruzzo. You are offered a narration device but it does not give you the correct description of the rooms. I preferred to read the information on each display.

Hi, My 2 brothers, my sister and I are planning a trip to Vasto to walk our grandparents paths. Do you know how we can research our family name/history? My great grandfather was a mailman, the family names would be: Cinquinna and di or de cicco. Any help would be appreciated.
