The concept

The Alba Truffle Museum has its roots in the Maddalena Courtyard, in the heart of the city where the International Alba White Truffle Fair takes place.


530 square meters that tell the story all year round of the various facets of an extraordinary product of the earth: the naturalistic, historical, cultural and gastronomic aspects of an underground mushroom that over the years has been able to establish itself worldwide.
The museum itinerary. The MUDET is part of the building surrounding the Cortile della Maddalena, a historic city complex that overlooks the central street, Via Vittorio Emanuele.

The museum is spread over 140 meters of exhibition itinerary divided into four thematic sections. The ten rooms include a laboratory space and tell the story of the world of truffles through 140 meters of thematic graphic illustrations, multimedia devices and the collection of over fifty thematic objects on display.
