There are at present over 40 rooms containing approximately 1500 works of art. The Roman epigraphic section in the courtyard gardené  contains about a hundred lapidary inscriptions dating from between the first century B.C. and the fourth century A.D.
From May 2003 onwards, on the ground floor, it's possible to visit the first room of the Archaeological Section of the Museum, in which you can find traces of the imperial period in Rimini beteween II and III century. The main attractions of this Museum are: "Domus del Chirurgo" (House of the Surgeon) an archaeological site which amazes for its collection of medical instruments and Diotallevi Palace's domus, famous for its fabulous mosaic.
On the groud floor there is also a permanent section dedicated to the artist from Rimini, René Gruau. A monumental eighteenth century staircase leads to an art gallery housed on the first and second floors, where paintings are arranged chronologically fron the eleventh century to the twentieth. The collection includes masterpieces from the fourteenth century Rimini school, paintings commissioned by the Malatesta Court, and original pieces by local seventeenth century artists.
