  • Museum full of artifacts, unfortunately little different (they are mostly pottery and URNs). Visit the "ombra della sera". Staff not the friendliest.

  • The visit to this Museum makes a wide variety of Etruscan finds obligatory. You should take some time for this!

  • Your visit to this location that appears as one of the capitals of etruria Tuscany and precisely to the Etruscans owes its rich Museum wanted by the scholar Mario Guarnacci. The finds can be visited are mostly finds in the area and will surely stand out the urns also finely crafted, but the most interesting is the '' covered spouses. '' Another artifact you can't miss is,, the shadow of the evening, in bronze, an ex-voto lengthened by youth. Not to be missed

  • 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
