  • Some reviewers have said here that there are no English translations of interpretive media, but I did not find that the case. Although the interpretation may be thin in places, it was easily translate...  more »
  • A substantial amount of exhibits, is certainly worth a visit. Exposure maybe still the source "private collection" old fashioned. A more modern presentation would make it truly exceptional.

  • The Museum presents a museum maybe a bit too monotonous, without giving a sense of continuity; I felt a little bit lost. Other than that the quantity and quality of the exhibits is vast and varied. Beautiful mosaic on the second floor.

  • 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
