The museums around Lake Orta, the most beautiful lake in Italy, are the authentic testimony to the industrious life of its inhabitants over the centuries.

The idea came in 1985 when, by the city hall, was set up by the citizenship, an exhibition entitled “Man and the water”. Hence the idea of setting up a true center capable of telling the story of the activity that revolves around the world in production of the taps. The museum occupies two rooms, one as office, meeting room and archive of documents and the other is the real museum space.

A take-off with an east exposure is also available, one step away from the arrival station of the Stresa-Mottarone cable car, ideal for a beautiful morning flight over the Borromean Gulf.
