  • Nice facility with an extensive display of artefacts in excellent condition. Definitely worth a visit along with the necropolis (you can buy the combo ticket to visit both places).

  • We must say that I don't like museums, but to Tarquinia left me amazed and especially one of the employees, of which unfortunately do not remember his name, he began to describe every little thing was exposed with a love and skill that I'd been listening for hours. I would definitely go back.

  • Bello ma un po' monotono
  • 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
  • Museum not to lose if he makes a stop in Tarquinia, groomed and well studied. I highly recommend it. That art and culture the Etruscans. Gorgeous population

  • A bit old in setting and with some deficiency, but exhibits truly exceptional. To see possibly after visiting the actual site of the necropolis (you can buy a combined ticket). Attention because they only enter shift and at certain times.
