  • In this museum are exposed the remains of the old site of Spina, which developed about 500 years B.C. There is a rich and extended display of ancient Greek pottery, jewels and so on. The exposition is...  more »

  • 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
  • People at the box office were very nice to me, even if I'm not talking about Italian very well. Furthermore, did the tour and the Guide answered with patience the various questions.

  • This fantastic Museum was dedicated to the ancient Etruscan town of Thorn, not far from Comacchio. This beautiful building is the result of the excavations made in the necropolis of Spina. At the top, you can admire the discovery of over 4000 graves and their objects inside (ranging from the sixth to the third century b.c.) that make it the most important collection of that time in the world. In fact in the tombs have been found numerous examples of attic pottery (Greek) since the Etruscans maintained numerous trade with the Greeks, of course there are also local products. The view is very wide and very well organized, with explanatory panels including multimedia. You will live a unique experience, in close contact with a civilization of more than 2000 years ago, discover how they lived, what they produced, as they wrote, who prayed and much more besides you can even touch objects dating from the 4th century BC a experience ever lived in any other Museum. Prices are 3 euros for children up to 25 years and 5 euros full price. Also not to be underestimated is the beautiful Palace where it guarded this Museum, the palazzo di Ludovico il moro is a pride for the city of ferrara. Not to forget the pirogues are also hidden a little lie down on your left. I recommend a visit.

  • The building is magnificent and very spectacular collection, especially for fans of the ceramic. His collection includes two canoes built from large logs, of incomparable historical value.

  • Magnificent museum dedicated to the city of Thorn. Will leave you breathless la Sale of the Dugouts, the Hall of the Ori and the many artifacts found in the necropolis of Spina. Salt very large and detailed explanations make it a pleasant visit to this museum. Too bad the lack of bookshop.
