The only cave-museum in the world and important exhibition venue entirely dedicated to sculpture, the MUSMA narrates the story of Italian and international sculpture from the end of 1800s to present day. The collection contains donations made by artists, collectors, art dealers and critics to the Fondazione Zètema of Matera, which is the museum’s organising body.

The MUSMA is housed in Palazzo Pomarici, a 16th-century building with deeply recessed caves, where you will discover the amazing combination of centuries-old, man-made rock caves, with contemporary sculpture.
