The municipal Antiquarium of Baschi is located inside the municipal building and displays exhibits found in over 20 years of excavations at the archaeological site in Scoppieto, near Civitella del Lago.

The Antiquarium exhibits pottery and furnishings from the Roman era which were made in the Scoppieto kiln and which were then transported to Rome and the Tyrrhenian coast on small boats that plied the navigable waters of the Tiber river. Two reconstructions of models of these boats are part of the exhibition. Interesting is also an educational path that allows visitors to understand the ceramic production techniques by following the phases of the production process.
