Beautiful exposition in a wonderful place. The exposition is really well curated (just missing some English translations). The villa is absolutely beautiful
Great museum,facinating historical information and artifacts ,friendly helpfull staff. maybe needs some better refreshments.
Enough materials and information for a day-long visit in one of the most beautiful settings in Rome, a noble family's Renaissance villa worth a visit on its own. Close to the Japan foundation, another jewel, and the Museum of Modern Art. A bit far from traditional tourist routes, but the Villa Borghese park is stunning and the two institutions really deserve a day visit.
Glorious location! Almost overwhelmed by the amount of archeological finds on display. Under the radar so practically empty
Can’t understand the positive reviews. The museum is very poorly laid out with not much information or structure. The information that is available is largely in Italian only. The grounds are nice but in need of some serious maintenance and renovation, much like the interior. If you’re really interested in Etruscan history then I’d recommend, if not, then not worth the trip.
