The Public Museum of Lanuvio has recently returned to its original site, which was destroyed during the last world war.
The current exhibitive spaces, still being renovated, house a pre-Roman and Roman, an epigraphic and a medieval section all equipped with a series of explanatory panels about the archaeological finds and the most important monuments of ancient Lanuvium.
Among the relics on exhibition there is a splendid fresco from the Augustan period that depicts some dionysiac scenes, some marmoreal fragments of the group of Licinio Murena (I century B.C.), a marmoreal parapet depicting a winged griffon from the Antonina period that comes from the theatre, and a series of architectural and votive stones of the Archaic and Hellenistic periods that come from the area around the Sanctuary of Juno Sospita.
Also of note are the collection of photographs of the digs of the Sanctuary and the Temple of Juno, which were carried out between 1884-1892 and 1914-1915 respectively, and the remains of the balineum of ancient Lanuvium that are also included in the exhibitive spaces in the Museum.
The section about daily life in antiquity has recently been completed and an archaeological laboratory for schools has been opened.
