This is something of a specialist museum. There are many beautiful artefacts from the era but most of the museum houses vast numbers of burial urns found in and around Volterra. So really to appreciate the place you must love the sculpture that is to...More

This museum is the go to place for Etruscan culture. And, it is in a great little town that has much more to offer, without the scrum that is San G.

An authentic collection of the town's own artifacts from late bronze age Etruria, with more rooms than I could count (11?) full of intricately carved alabaster urns depicting Etruscan cultural scenes on the bottoms and unique individuals on the tops. And more! I was lost...More

Want to learn a lot about Etruscans? Then buy the multi-pas and get thee to this museum. You can see tools and tombs galore.

We visited with a group and had a local guide who explained the history of the area and the importance of these urns. If you don't have a guide, I would recommend the audio tour.

To appreciate the historical importance of the Tuscany region this museum displays maps and artifacts and tombs with exciting views over the rolling landscape!

A facinating museum overflowing with wonderous artefacts. Rooms filled with ceramics, jewellery all found in the burial sites. One of the most important Etruscan museums in Italy.

The museum offers a nice overview of Etruscan artifacts found around Volterra. There are (too) many Etruscan urns. The daily artifacts on the top floor are of interest, as well as the small statue found. For children the museum is not so attractive.
