The Archaeological Museum was founded in 1923 on the premises of the former fifteenth century convent of San Gerolamo, which is found in the area of the Teatro Romano
. The exhibit includes greek vases, mosaics, sculptures, glass objects and utensils for daily use, from necropolises, sacred and sepulchral inscriptions found in Verona
and her province. The museum building was built over the area of the Teatro Romano
(which was started in the I century A.D.), where the remains of the stage, orchestra and cavea of the theatre building are among the best conserved in northern Italy. The adjacent church of San Girolamo
conserves frescoes fom the XV and XVI century.
