This museum recounts the history of Corsica from pre-history through to World War II.
A visit to the museum begins with a look back in time over four centuries, starting with a fresco depicting three major figures in the island's history: Pascal Paoli, Bonaparte and Faustina Galfori.
From here, visitors are introduced to the history of Corsica through a series of etchings, coins, cards, documents, old weapons, costumes, dioramas and models.
This museum is a must for all those who wish to gain a better understanding of this wonderful region.
