The F.O.I. - Onlus Ornithology Museum preserves, studies and exhibits birds that live in their natural habitat, but also those who have been reared by man. The museum was born from the desire to disseminate the ornithological culture through the knowledge of birds and the special attention dedicated to the characteristics that make these animals so unique among all living creatures. The museum is housed in a typical building of the first decades of the 20th century. On the first floor there is a didactic exhibition room; on the outside there is an aviary that hosts small exotic birds together with birds from the local fauna.
Apart from the permanent collection, in spring and summer the museum offers temporary photographic and art exhibitions on the environment and nature.
