  • We had mentioned about this Museum, but once inside you will be enchanted by the richness of the finds and their beauty. Beautiful, beautiful. We loved the chance to touch some exhibits (the sensorial part). Truly a Museum of excellence. Should be done knowing more.

  • The Museum is housed in the Palazzo dei Costabili, said Ludovico il Moro, a measly kilometer outside the city center, but always abundantly within the walls. Maybe that's the deterrent that deters tourists? The fact is that it does not have the fame it deserves. Its shop windows displaying an amazing amount of artifacts excavated from the tombs (over 4000) of the rich merchants Etruscans that inhabited the mythical city of thorn, the mouth of the Po, lost for centuries and found at the beginning of ' 900. These are the furnishings that were placed in tombs to accompany the deceased in the afterlife, and because the deceased were rich, the furnishings are often lavish. Gold, jewels, attic vases of admirable workmanship. Greek attic vases, i.e., an Etruscan city. Of course, Plug started ships loaded of grano padano supplying Athens and returned from Athens with luxury goods at that time: the merchants wanted us to their beautiful fgura! Pots wonderful, as you can see even in the National Museum in Athens. Deserves the two extra steps: Besides the Palazzo di Ludovico il Moro is the nicest Renaissance palace in Ferrara. There seems little?

  • One visit is not enough, so is full of precious things, this Museum, from prehistoric to the Etruscan and Greek boats, only decorated vases require contemplation ecstatic, unsuited to hurried tourists. As in other archaeological museums are possible without flash, enthusiasts will find some bread for their teeth even with the only existing lighting.

  • Very beautiful very good condition good service
  • Fantastic, based on extensive excavations at Spina (on the coast ).
  • this place was fantastic. Really well done, marked and displayed. A gem. finds from Spina, Greco-Etruscan seaport and trading colony near Comacchino. Those frescoes in the ceiling of Sala del Tesoro are to die for, so beautiful. Gorgeous garden in back well kept; a tranquil respite. Deserves to be visited more
  • Unbelievably beautiful
  • Beautiful Museum with exhibits really interesting! In particular there is a section dedicated to the ancient Etruscan city of Thorn and a room which houses two boats by late Roman times.
