Poster boards in English provide enough detailed explanation to make this extensive Collection understandable for the typical visitor. Delicate intricate jewelry different from other museums in the area.

There are so many treasures in this museum. A definite must-see. It is a shame that it is so far off the beaten or tourist track as the contents are a valuable addition to Italy's overall collection.

All artifacts are on the ground floor, wheelchair accessible. No Endlish facts but the artifacts speak for themselves. The side can be walked or driven too but is up hill either by stairs or a rough road. Again a huge site.
