Spent two hours here this morning admiring the remains of an old Roman" Anfitearto Romano" colloseum adjacent to the old Abbey hosting the collection. The first significant input was that some of the Etruscan artifacts dated back to the eighth century BC. There was one...More

Start with museum located in old abbey located next to a Roman amphitheater and add a lot of rare Etruscan artifacts. This museum is a gem. Especially for anyone interested in items from Etruscan era. We spent a wonderful afternoon here and highly recommend it

This was an easy museum to visit without the crowds of summer tourism. The collections are impressive examples of early art and history.

The museum sheds light on the Arezzo history and it's Archaeology. Nicely organized and not too overloaded with items. Worth a visit. Wonderful display of terra sigillata pottery.
