The Museum of the Territory, located in the old heart of Biella, tantalizes visitors as a starting point for an memorable exploration of Biellese culture and atmosphere. Housed in the beautiful St. Sebastian cloister, the museum hosts a permanent part, containing a collection of medieval treasures that offer a journey through Biella’s history as well as an exhibit of ancient Egyptian art, dedicated to the memory of explorer Ernesto Schiapparelli. The second part of the museum, on the other hand, usually hosts important temporary exhibitions.
