The Archaeological Museum of Cremona is located in the deconsecrated basilica of San Lorenzo and in the annexed 15th-century Meli Chapel. It displays the most significant part of Cremona's archaeological collections: through the finds made from the 19th century until the excavation in Piazza Marconi, it allows us to reconstruct the image of the city founded by the Romans in 218 BC, the oldest in the territory north of the Po. The museum is itself located on an archaeological site, the remains of which are still largely visible; in fact, the Romanesque church of San Lorenzo stands on the remains of an older church, dating back to the 10th century, erected in turn on the site of an early Christian funerary building and a necropolis dating back to the Roman Republican period.
