There are some very rare items on display in a well set out museum. The only issue is that the boat isn't there - not even a replica.
Nevertheless, worth a visit for some of the artefacts recovered.

A small but fascinating museum. Some of the articles on show are amazingly well preserved. Men's footwear from 1st century BC.

This small museum made the most of the discovery of a Roman commercial vessel that sank near Comacchio 100 BC. Well worth a visit to complete your stroll through Comacchio.

Wandering around the streets and canals of Comacchio, deservedly known as "little Venice", we came across this museum displaying the cargo of a Roman ship discovered in the1980s. Not only were we grateful to escape from the 38 degrees outside into an air conditioned space, but we were very intrigued by the amazing artefacts on display, including some very fine miniature shrines to Venus and Priapus and other deities, which still had working doors on them. Apparently the ship (of which there are models and a photo-montage on display), was discovered outside the town during the dredging of a canal, which in Roman times would have been part of the seashore as a further 4km of land has been reclaimed from the sea in the intervening centuries. The original boat, built sometime in the first century BC, is kept nearby in a special airtight environment to avoid any further deterioration.

The lady on the reception desk was incredibly helpful and filled in all sorts of historical detail for us (in Italian). There is quite lot of information in English though.

The ship is not accessible to visitors but it is a fine museum for the artifacts. The exhibits are well labeled.
