  • Based in the Castello Ruspoli in Cerveteri the small museum has two floors. There are numerous burial remains from Rowan villanovians. Others from the necropolis of Banditaccia necropolis in the area and others. Upstairs are exposed the most important finds like the crater and Kylix to Euphonium. The crater is beautiful, a glass decorated with red figures, 45 cm high and with a diameter of 55 cm, returned by the Metropolitan Museum in New York to Italy in 2006. Coming from the looting occurred in 1971 of an Etruscan tomb in Cerveteri.

  • Although this small museum, located in the pedestrian square in the center of Cerveteri, represents an interest in itself is certainly due completion to those coming from outside to visit the surrounding necropolis. Here you can find artifacts and objects that, for obvious reasons, you can't see inside the tombs and burial mounds dug. Some works are significant and of great beauty for the excellent state of preservation and restoration work. The Museum is spread over two floors (no lift) and it is not uncommon to find important pieces in the temporary exhibition, provided perhaps the Etruscan Museum of villa Giulia in Rome. If you visit the necropolis can get extra tickets for this museum only €2.

  • To be perfectly onest it is rather small and disappointing compared to the Tarquinia one. It features some 3d presentations that are nothing more than a gimmick. If you have to choose between this one and Tarquinia go for the latter.
  • The Museum is not particularly large but definitely interesting. Contains a wonderful collection of artifacts and pottery all from the Etruscan necropolis and around Cerveteri. The place itself is nice to look at (the castle of Cerveteri). Note the help of modern virtual technologies that use a unique operating material of the Museum, all voiced by Piero Angela. All this makes it pleasantly enjoyable visit to adults and children. There are beautiful pieces including the beautiful "Euphronios crater".

  • Wonderful collection of pottery and artifacts from the Etruscan necropolis around Cerveteri. Excellent location inside the castle of Cerveteri. Inside the Museum there are interactive stations really interesting (although some were not working) where you can view the material and listen to subsidies on exhibits provided by Piero Angela. Really recommended.
