Museo Arte e Storia della Miniera (Museum of the Art and History of Mining) Review

This museum, in the upper part of town, shows how dependent Massa Marittima has been since Etruscan times on the mining of copper, lead, and silver. Exhibits trace the history of the local mining industry. Across the street, you can even visit a real mine.
