The Civic Historical Museum is located in the centre of Musso, not far from the lake. It collects artefacts and testimonies of events and production activities that have characterised the town. The museum exhibits relics closely linked to the local area, including prints and machinery relating to the cultivation of silkworms. The section dedicated to silkworm breeding was opened in 2015.
The museum, which is currently being set up, was officially opened to the public in 2017. The exhibition spaces accessible to visitors include: the marble quarries, the castle of Musso by Gian Giacomo Medici, known as “Il Medeghino”, the last lord of the castle; silkworm breeding and the silk industry, emigration from the Alto Lario to the Americas and Europe.
The museum often hosts temporary exhibitions and various conferences.
The museum is owned by the Municipality of Musso, but is managed by volunteers from the “Musso passato e futuro” (Musso Part and Present) Association.
