  • Site of L'ombre della Serra, Etruscan sculpture which famously inspired works by Giacometti. Rest of collection very interesting.  more »
  • If Etruscan history is your thing, then you'll be in your element here. But even if it's not, the extent and condition of the collection - and the almost as impressive range of artifacts from the Roma...  more »
  • When we arrived we found all the labels in Italian and were put off, however with an audio guide it is a really interesting museum with some fascinating pieces. It took us about an hour and half to vi...  more »

  • 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
