Museo Granum

The Granum Museum

The museum space called “Granum”, located in the old Municipal Hall, is a multi-medial and multisensorial experience dedicated to pink granite and its historical and economic importance for Baveno. The museum also documents the variety of sites where granite is quarried and processed as well as the routes it takes within the territory of the Province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola.
The exhibition area is divided into 4 thematic sections: types of granite and of other stone in the province of VCO; mineralogical rarities; the workmanship and processing of granite both today and in yesteryear; the history of quarrying and how granite is used locally and overseas.
