Enter The Museum


Explore the Volterra Museum, which has on display many the tools and pieces of equipment used on patients when the asylum was in action. Lining the walls are thousands of medical journals, detailing everything from mental disorders to physical ailments, which were used to diagnose those who entered the hospital.

The museum itself acted as a welcome centre for new patients, where they were registered into the system and made to say their goodbyes to family and friends.
