The Borea Museum

It is one of Sanremo’s jewels, the guardian of the city of flowers’ culture and not only. We are talking about the Borea Museum, in the high street of Via Matteotti, a few steps away from the temple of music, the Teatro Ariston. The Museum has been located in the late baroque palace of the noble family Borea d’Olmo since 1972. A building whose rooms variously accommodated Elisabetta Farnese, the Queen of Spain, Carlo Emanuele III, King of Sardinia, the French painter Jean Honore Fragonard and Pope Pius VII returning from his French captivity. The Museum is part of the Museum complex which also includes the Pinacoteca Rambaldi in Coldirodi or Museum of Villa Luca.

The Museum complex’s responsibilities concern the collection, cataloguing and preservation of the archaeological heritage, the conservation of public and private donations, the collection of historical documents, all the collections of the Complex itself, the promotion, in collaboration with various organisations, of the Museum and of the exhibitions or events which it hosts.

The Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday, all day from 9 am to 7 pm. Full price tickets cost 3 euro  (reduced price for over 65 and students, 2€). Combined ticket for the Museum and the Art Gallery of Villa Luca: full price ticket 5€ and 2 euro for the reduced price ticket. Free entrance for children under six. The educational workshops apply a price of 2 € per pupil.
