For the charge of 6 euros per person, this small museum is worth visiting for 60 to 120 minutes or so. Tarquinia is also worthy of visiting and having a lunch and/or dinner.

What an extensive museum inside an amazing building. Very clean and well presented. Recommend you get the ticket that also allows entry to the necropolis which is on the edge of the town about 1.5 miles away from the museum.

The nature and the small roads/pathways in this area are amazing and its nice to end the visit with such a museum. The restored burial rooms on the top floor are a must see.

This is a must see before or after the Tarquinia Necropolis . It is housed in an old monastery/castle. The sarcophagi are stunning and so is the other sculptures.
