  • 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.
