The Archeological-Naturalistic Museum “Adolfo Klitsche de La Grange” is inside the Palace of the Apostolic Camera is divided into two macro sections: that related to human presence and that related to nature. You can find relics dating back to the Pleistocene, to the Etruscan, Roman and medieval.

A section relates to work in the mines from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. The town of Allumiere was born around the mines and takes the name from Alum (allume), a strategic mineral used during the renaissance to clarify turbid liquids, as a mordant in dyeing, and in tanning.

The naturalistic section, in addition to the fauna and flora of the area, has an important geological section on geology, rocks and mineralogy.
