then this will make you very happy. Definitely get the audio guide and you'll learn a ton. Fantastic giant array of Etruscan artifacts and funerial urns ...and sculptures and the most beautiful glass. Really worth the visit.

When visiting Volterra, this museum offers a nice insight in Etruscan culture through the exhibition of many artifacts dating from that era. I did not take the audio guide, so I had to rely on my basic Italian skills to understand the signs (if there...More

There are far too many funerary urns for the average visitor to appreciate - walls and walls, room after room. We looked at the heavily carved urns then carried on to look at other objects, including some wonderful gold jewellery. I think you would need...More

If you want to see about a thousand boxes for burying the ashes of dead Etruscans this is the place to go. However, I got tired of seeing so many. There are a few other artifacts to be seen, and it they worth seeing. If...More
