Housed inside the neoclassical building that overlooks on the shores of Lake Iseo, was specially built on a project by Sebastiano Salimbeni, architect amateur, by Count Luigi Tadini (Verona, 1745 - Lovere 1829) to accommodate the art collections and in the adjacent Palazzo Barboglio, schools of music and drawing. The shipyard launched in 1820, was concluded in 1826. The building retains large parts of the original neoclassical decoration, as the friezes on the walls and ceilings painted by Luigi Dell was in 1826 in tempera on paper mounted on canvas, a technique used for the theatrical sets. Particularly valuable is the archaeological cabinet, with decorations in Pompeian style inspired by the parietal decorations found in the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
