  • On the whole a good museum and a must for any trip to Cortona. The layout of rooms is thoughtful, but not all the descriptions for objects have been translated into English, and many of them could hav...  more »
  • Hidden gem ... I wasn't expecting that much I admit but instead is very rich in relics and the part about Egypt pretty comprehensive ... Only negative: distributed over several floors and rather messed up ... why has the maximum rating. Anyway to see

  • collects testimonies from all eras, even outside the context, as the important Egyptian artefacts. well organized and attention to detail: all the exhibits are illustrated with brief descriptions.

  • Almost a relic itself, this stately little museum holds extraordinary Etruscan treasures. The old-school layout heightens the sense of entering a museum from a 1940s movie, but it provides a thorough -- if slightly kind scattershot -- introduction to a wide array of artifacts from Etruscan world. That it is reasonably priced and uncrowded are also a plus.
  • Much bigger than you'd expect when seeing it from the outside! Definitely budget more time than you think you'll need. Worth a see though!
  • Very interesting place to visit under the palace and then you see the wall of the old town.
  • Lots of Interresting things to see inside cheap price if there is more than 4 of you at €7, we'll worth a visit if you are in cortona
