  • You can't help but visit it for its wealth of historic/artistic artefacts exposed to the beauty of the building that houses it. One point less to the care with which it is kept, you can improve.

  • Wonderful exhibits in a great building. Pottery, coins, sarcophogi, and statuary. Much of this is from the Etruscan Tombs outside the city gates.
  • Good local museum. Worth a visit
  • A Pearl of the Museum set in a Palace ... What more could you want? This place is brimming with history and relics of the past, is a joy to get into the numerous rooms and admire the many testimonies of a past prosperous and glorious. Not to be missed!

  • The Museum is very good and it is impressive to see the invoice has the status of objects dating back more than 2,000 years ago. A flaw in my opinion, is a subdivision of content that is not talking by era and by type

  • A tour of Tarquinia and its Museum should not be missed for those who are interested in antiquity and especially to the Etruscans. The necropolis is similarly interesting but little put in value. Very disappointing to report when the head of the office of tourism refuses the visit to the site of the ancient city, opposite the Hill on which lies the modern city. For those who make the trip, it is incomprehensible and unacceptable and that is why I only gave 3 stars.
