The museum has local discoveries from the Etruscan era, including burial items and wall paintings. There is explanation in English. Fascinating and unusual.

We've seen a lot of Etruscan Museums, and while it was not as grand as some, it gave a very intimate feeling, especially in the reproduction of the tomb la Quadriga Infernale in the final room, which was lovely. We also visited the tombs themselves...More

Maybe the smallest museum I've ever visited, but still rich in quality and of high value. There are two main room upstairs, and four room downstairs to explore. I especially liked the wall paintings downstairs with the three headed serpent, the hippocampus and the demon...More
