Palazzo Vitelleschi os beautiful and it holds a gorgeous collection of Etruscan art, from funerary tombs and other objects to an amazing collection of ceramics. Some objects are absolutely unique. A must in a beautiful city.

The museum is easy to cover in an hour if you don't read every label. The sculptures of the horses and Mithras are well worth the modest price of admission. The selection of Etruscan sarcophagi well covers the average interested person's need to know. The...More

Despite this city suffering extensive damage during WWII, this free museum gives a good historical overview of the region. The labeling is good, and with a small collection, museum fatigue doesn't occur.

On the information board outside it made it sound that the museum was interesting. We did not think that it was that interesting and the English explanations were not easy to understand.It was free though.

We took the city bus from Civitavecchia to Tarquinnia. It was easy to do. The museum is quite interesting and worth an afternoon. One can also climb the hills and see some tombs in their original setting but we chose not to do that.

If you are already walking around the town, why wouldn't you stop by this free museum to see the statues and artwork? It just solidifies the fact that you are in Italy and beautiful art is truly everywhere. Plus, even with just the two rooms...More

Perhaps the smallest and simplest archaeological museum ever. It is only about two rooms and, unless you want to read all the detailed signage, good for a 5-10 minute visit. If you are near the port, it is worth it but I would not go...More
