  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Very big Museum where you can see many things; from Greek pottery, Etruscan, the myth of gold, Pirogues and monossili maps. Free entrance with myFe card.
