  • Visit Perugiu and overlook the archaeological museum is simply unthinkable. After all, the city of Perugia was established Etrskov. The nation that gave their life so much knowledge and expertise, that of ancient Rome made a superpower. The Etruscans were skilled craftsmen, stonemasons, zlatotepci. Had a wonderful jewelry, produced weapons, tkali substances, they built the road. Did you know that the Etruscans were the first they knew to do dental bridges? Made from gold. They were kind of the culture, but their origins many do not know, it is believed that they came from somewhere in the region of Turkey. Its buried people into massive sarcophagi of marble and show the image of the dead. Objects in the graves indicate a highly branched international contacts. Some of the items have proven dead fenický and Egyptian origin. Their houses have built of stone and brick. They were the first builders of the arches, which are used in the construction of aqueducts. In particular, the maliarskym were his art. Everything you see in this an interesting archaeological museum .... not in the heart of the city, but do not be discouraged.

  • A short walk from the Centre of Perugia, this museum has many archaeological remains mainly the Etruscans. Unfortunately there is an audio guide but with only 5 euro entrance fee can not be expected.

  • There is so much to see here. It is a fascinating place with interesting sections on the Etruscans and Romans.
  • Nice museum with lot of ancient urns and statues
  • A huge museum with amazing views!
  • Relatively small museum, but with many interesting ideas. There are no sensational finds, but what is of value, explained well and need to get an idea of the Etruscan culture in the area and exhaustive of the Umbrians. Among the interesting exhibits I would report the extensive collection of cinerary urns, the tomb of the Cai Cutu (an Etruscan family of the 2nd century BC) reproduced at full size, with the more than 50 ballot boxes (which are also originals) that over the course of two centuries, there have been buried and the collection of jewellery and gold. Also there are some curiosities, not exactly "archeological" including very interesting and "fun" the collection of Giuseppe Bellucci amulets (hundreds of charms ranging from "stones of lightning", insurance policies against witches, the ropes of the hanged against the evil eye, up to the classic "Holy" apotropaic and croissants). The museum visit pretty quickly and is in a beautiful medieval complex (a former convent) with a beautiful cloister.

  • Inside the convent of San Domenico, the Museum is rich in Etruscan and polls. Also loved my children. The pieces are varied. Begins on the ground floor where there is a reconstruction of an Etruscan tomb is an exhibition of gold jewellery and amulets upstairs many urns and Etruscan artifacts. Also a collection of Neolithic period. Cannot read all cabinets. The price is euro 4 children free. First Sunday of every month free
