  • Beautiful Museum in the heart of Perugia, in a location that's already worth to be visited. Many finds of Etruscan and Roman age, very well preserved and described, as well as a wing reserved for Umbrians, which is difficult to find anywhere else and is very comprehensive and well laid out. Also private collections and many curiosities for lovers of ancient history in General

  • It's precious box and numerous Etruscan but where is the Museum? Council an effective signage r get there, and an enhancement of pieces found trying to capture and entice the attention of tourists. My visit was a bore, numerous artifacts thrown at random, without a logical nor a story on them. I say go but be prepared for a parade of ruins without personality and due importance, if you are fond of the Etruscans you can also open your tablet and scroll through images, much in the same way.

  • We visited almost by chance: from the lookout at the end of corso Vannucci, we had spotted the Church San Domenico which stands with its imposing views of the old town. Leaving the Center we parked to visit the Church and, finding it locked, we entered the cloister of the monastery and decided to visit the Museum in it hosted. The Museum contains mainly archeological remains, mostly Etruscan, found during excavations or recovered from looting made to Etruscan. In the basement is rebuilt the Tomb Cutu, one of the few graves cross found intact in the territory, with inside the urns contained therein. Complete the Etruscan section a myriad of funerary urns, tree stumps, remains of weapons, ornaments of chariots and jewels. The first floor also has a collection of amulets, collected from a local University anthropologist, consisting of over 3000 pieces, interesting but poorly lit. Beside a collection of coins from antiquity to the latest brand cones in Perugia. In General l pieces are of great importance, it lacks perhaps greater care in exposure and better visibility of the information contained in the dark Tomb reconstruction. A museum like this should have to queue at the entrance on a public holiday, not 9/10 visitors encountered along the way.

  • The only plus point is the still very much exhibition space, storage and restoration laboratory: I wonder what happened since the University was made to 600 (six hundred) fragments (riassemblabili) of BUCCHERO SHINING UP RING VIII. BC excavated in happy times (long ago) below the subfoundation of containment wall for the eponymous Temple, replaced by the current San Lorenzo. ..?

  • Loved the location (cloister of the nearby San Domenico). Very interesting for lovers of archaeology. I loved the little Hall with jewels. The section dedicated to amulets is made very well

  • Good preparation in a beautiful setting. The collection of Giuseppe Bellucci amulets is very attractive. The bronzes of the Etruscan chariot. The cippus of Perugia fascinating.

  • It is a Museum and abroad would make sparks for what it contains. Here instead is almost abandoned to his fate. Really too bad
