The Museum of the Tartuca neighbourhood, dedicated to St Anthony of Padua, is a museum complex designed to show the history and present-day life of the neighbourhood and divided into three sections: The Museum of the Palio, where the banners won by the neighbourhood in the Palio races are kept, including those painted by the contemporary artists Botero and Mitoraj; The Costume Museum, which preserves the “montature”, the costumes used for the historic procession since the second half of the nineteenth century.

The Museum of Sacred Artefacts (Arredi Sacri) where old religious objects from the church and Oratory, such as vestments and reliquaries, are kept.
