  • The area of the excavations, that all my life I wanted to see, is beautiful and interesting. Don't expect anything monumental, but if you know how to read a map and figure out how the stones speak, to anger Marzabotto is a discovery. Nice Museum with beautiful exhibits placed within a context vaguely dusty. I think a museum like that deserves more attention, more subsidies, more investment. The staff is heroic: believe it, welcomes you. There were two of us, at 4 pm on a Saturday. Only.

  • Convenient to reach, interesting though lacking explanation ... Maybe a booklet with more information so as to identify more immediate composition of the city would be nice. Even the internal maintenance is deficient. More could be done to make it interesting and to stimulate the curiosity of the visitor.

  • The remains of the Etruscan city give a clear idea of the structure of the city, with a well preserved necropolis, and the Museum completes the visit. The Museum is not particularly large but well organized. In an hour or so you can make an interesting journey back in time.

  • This could have been a great place if it had any information at all in English! Sure, the displays were really interesting, and mostly self-explanatory, but it was hard to put what we saw into a context. The excavated city outside was fascinating to look at, but again no context. All we knew is that we were looking at really old remains of a settlement.
  • Small but nice museum, great excavation side.
  • The Museum offers guided tours to discover the ancient Etruscan civilization of so-called Etruria Valley. The visits are made by archaeologists (great! I complimented personally with our very fond Monica Guide) of the University of Bologna and can be obtained very interesting and well thought out, creative workshops for children and school groups. The guides offer a path inside the Museum and Archaeological Park that is absolutely worth doing, because alone we cannot appreciate the exhibits, nor navigate among the remains of temples, roads and buildings including the provision and reconstructing the meaning and importance. The Museum is well equipped and stocked with interesting finds and reconstructions, while the Park, looks older and less maintained (obvious wear signs and lawn that is not cut with the right frequency to allow viewing of the facilities of which are only the foundations). Many of the excavations date back to 800 and not continued, while other important findings, like an old furnace and a temple, were covered again, for lack of funds. It's really a shame (and speaks volumes about the inability of doing business on the culture). The bar, previously present and well equipped hotel is currently closed and you need to go to the pro loco (10 minute walk from the Park Headquarters) in order to find items to buy as a souvenir, but consider it in advance because unfortunately is open only in the morning . . Highly recommended however the guided tour, you feel like you have known our ancestors more closely.

  • Is a nice Museum, interestingly enough. There is a first part and a second part where you can see the Acropolis and the necropolis, although there are many explanations. Queso I would improve or you have to put some explanation for the outside. Honestly I expected more, but I can't say that it is not good exposure on the contrary is very rich in well maintained objects. There are bathrooms clean and there are many and also a lounge bar where you can grab a coffee.
