One relaxed place to go to and feel the old treasures and history of Siena. Paintings, architecture, sculptures... its all there. The relaxed way things are on display give the welcome feeling of intimacy.

The museum was interesting in parts. Seemed to be displays being rearranged or set up. The section about the recent earthquake in Umbria was very interesting

This is a must for any visitor to Siena. Extraordinary. A class act of a museum. I take groups to Siena and this is always at the top of the list. No one is ever disappointed in Museo Archeologico.

**about 50% of the rooms on the map are closed - Very poor lighting with very few worthwhile pottery pieces. Some Roman eroded/damaged marble cremation internment urns and containers - basically for school field trips

If you're interested in ancient Siena, this is a great expedition (pun intended - as in archeological expedition). For 9 euros for all areas of the museum, the price is reasonable. We spent an hour before lunch and plan to return after for more. It...More
