We came first time at 12.45 pm, but the place was closed. There was siesta between 13-15 o’clock. Ok. We waited for 2 hours in the area an came back at 15.05. There was a note on the door saying “guided Tour in progress - please wait”. We waited for 25 minutes and left... It would be more respectful to let people know for how long They need to wait. This was very unsatisfying!

Really nothing special. Very poor museum, just one room with few bodies and skulls. All the round last 10 minutes if you spend a lot of time.

This is a must visit place in Italy,- a respectful place of mumies naturally conserved,- and short stories of known history for many of the well conserved bodies and body parts. Even possible to recognize facial expressions and possible to see the unique characteritstics of them. Highly fascinating and interesting

If you are visiting the Marmore Falls, taking a further trip to Ferentillo is worth it to see the Mummie museum. It is small but the exhibits are worth seeing and are presented in an interesting way and there is information on who they were and how they died and how well they have been preserved. We also visited the church on top of the museum and it is also very interesting and worth a visit. The scenery around this Valnerina area is spectacular.

For those who have a scientific and historical interest in this topic that may otherwise be frightening, a visit to the crypt of the Church is absolutely a must. Here a unique micro-climate and the chemical composition of the soil contributed to naturally mummify the bodies that were buried in the crypt of this church. It is astonishing how even parts of the skins and organs are so preserved and how the paleoanthropologists could tell about the story of each of them It is not allowed to take photos but you can buy a two euros booklet which includes photos and description of all the reliquaries.
