  • Needless to say, the sections of the archaeological museum are of exceptional interest, however the slowness in completing the preparations will undermine the overall rating. It would take the cue and the money they made magical the Opera del Duomo. Not everything is perfectly readable, missing leaves room in the Etruscan section, sometimes the lighting is quite precarious. Very nice room with the Chimera and the Arringatore, as well as the section Greek Etruscan vases and cameos, though tentative as accommodation. In short, despite a few drawbacks that cannot be overlooked, things to make the eyes.

  • Beautiful Museum, Hapy and rich in Etruscan and Egyptian artifacts especially on 3 floors and with a garden which offers a walk through Etruscan tombs. Not particularly rich part of Roman history but still is present with emphasis of some interesting features including some Fayum portraits that are quite rare to behold. Very rich the caption and clearly laid out all the exhibits in very large rooms. The chimaera of Arezzo and the vase Francois are some of the nicest remains to be observed. At the entrance of the Museum there is a bookshop and admission is charged. The Museum is located in the immediate vicinity of the city centre. Attention at the time of Sunday because the closure is unaccountably good visit at 14.

  • I didn't think Florence should keep many relics and artifacts, the Etruscans, passing through an important Egyptian section, where the only wagon arrived to our days (not even in the Egyptian Museum of Turin!), also going for finds in Greece. A special note goes to the Chimera of Arezzo, where you get lost looking at details, and reluctantly detaches us from

  • Cheap and so good value for money in terms of sheer number of objects. Some interesting stories to tell in terms of Etruscan pots and Egyptian burial practices and fabrics. Three problems. Some lighting made it impossible to view objects either because you had to stand between light and object to see it or because nobody had thought about the reflection coming off the perspex screens. A cloak was impossible to examine. There are better ways of lighting photosensitive objects: lower light in the room as a whole for example. Second, related, there wasn't enough room sometimes to see whole displays. So back up to read some text and you find yourself backing into another display case. Also one of the security staff was overbearing present to the point of making me uncomfortable. By all means watch what I'm doing but don't follow me at a constant distance (step for step. I started shuffling a few paces at a time to test it). For context I am in my thirties, a historian, and there was nothing in that area that was not secured behind perspex or glass. I didn't look like a threat. Made it hard to try to compare bits of material culture though. It was a relief when some kids came in: staff member was on them like a shot.
  • Almost doesn't belong in a city with such sterling museums, though still worth a visit despite the down-at-the-heels feel (especially the first floor, the dingy stairwells, the missing signage and solo water closet). Houses stunning ancient artifacts, especially Etruscan treasures.
  • A forgotten jewel in Florence with many stunning pieces. Forgotten means: some items out of place, sometimes no captions, lack of light.
  • No one visit there. All the explanations written in Italian.
  • The Etruscans have been so neglected and this is one of a few places to help to fill In one of the classical world's lacunas.
