Palatine Museum
The Palatine Museum displays precious finds from excavations on the hill from the 19th century until the present. It was opened in around 1930, re-adapting the 19th-century Convent of the Sisters of the Visitation, in turn built on part of the imperial palace. On the underground storey of the museum the various phases of the palace foundations can be seen, whilst the upper floor hosts an exhibition of finds belonging to the sculptural decorations of the palaces, whose topography and history are also illustrated.

Museo Palatino
Il Museo Palatino espone preziosi reperti provenienti dagli scavi effettuati sul colle dal XIX secolo ad oggi. Fu allestito intorno al 1930, riadattando un edificio ottocentesco progettato come convento delle Monache della Visitazione e construito a sua volta su una parte del palazzo imperiale. Al piano seminterrato del museo sono visibili le fondazioni del palazzo nelle sue varie fasi, mentre al piano superiore sono esposti reperti appartenenti alla decorazione scultorea dei palazzi, di cui si illustra la topografia e la storia.
