  • For those who love the Etruscans this museum is a treasure chest, full of archaeological finds from the excavations to rich Etruscan town. URNs, wealthy tombs, personal items of iron, bronze, gold, everyday utensils, votive statues, ceramics, alabasters, everything contributes to deepen the knowledge of Etruscan scholars, ingenious and resourceful people.

  • Museum well maintained with many Etruscan artifacts such as URNs and bronzes including the famous ombra della sera. Staff not particularly attentive and if we want tourism we must offer quality.

  • Guarnacci Etruscan Museum Palace which is spread over three floors with the first floor most of the historical remains dating back to the Etruscans. There are many urns which were brought to light the remains. There are audio-guides in other languages and this is a great lack especially for the many tourists who visit the area. In short, nothing to write home about

  • This was a kind of weird museum. I enjoyed it, but at some point it stopped being interesting to see Etruscan funerary urns. That's primarily what's in this museum. Worth seeing as a part of the family pass or if you've got a large interest in Etruscan funerary urns, that's about it. Maybe better with a tour guide.
  • Boring, just A LOT of poteries put on shelves without any explanation. Not interesting at all. The most interesting thing is that it is one of the oldest European museum. Opened during the 18th century, probably didn't change since...
  • Nice museum with rich collection from Etruscan times. There is wonderful view from the terrace on the 3th floor.
  • Many lovely items, esp. the cinerary urns. But it's all organized very poorly (and there's an excess of cinerary urns on display). The display cards are all in Italian, but of wildly varying styles. Worth a visit while in Volterra, but maybe not the key thing to see there.
  • The exhibits in the Museum are interesting too bad not adequately valued from lights to allow a better view and a lack of appropriate explanatory tables for better understanding to "non-experts". Pity that these days some halls are temporarily closed for restoration
