The museum has had different seats since its foundation in 1887; the last setting up was opened in 1959 in the Castle, on the occasion of the celebrations for the centenary of the liberation of Brescia from the Austrian rule.
The exhibition showed in chronological order the events that characterized the history of Italy and Brescia from the end of the 18th century to aproximately 1870, with the aid of documents and antiques, photographs, old weapons, medals, prints and portraits of historical figures.


Three exhibitions followed the closing of the museum in 2005(for works on the building and a different location of the rooms).
Their aim was the experimentation of new teaching and exhibition methods.
In 2005 an exhibition about Independence War II was opened (La grande battaglia. L’immenso ospedale / The great battle. The huge hospital).
The next exhibition (Cara Italia. La Restaurazione. Le Dieci Giornate di Brescia / Dear Italy. The Restoration. The Ten Days of Brescia) was about the period between 1814 and  1848.
The third exhibition, which is still currently open (L’Italia degli Italiani 1860-1878, Brescia dopo l’Unità / Italy to the Italians 1860-1878, Brescia after the Unity), deals with the national historical events starting from the expedition of the Thousand until the age of Umberto I.


The Garibaldians from Brescia, the commemorative monuments, the opening of the museum  itself and the features of the city in that period are the themes which have been deeply developed .
Moreover, the three exhibitions allowed a better evaluation of the heritage of the museums as a whole and the accomplishment of wide campaigns of restoration.
