The Etruscans in this area left behind alabaster and terracotta cinerary urns with lovely statues of the deceased on the lid, many of them of women who apparently had a high status in their society, and this museum has more than 600 of them. The...More

There are far too many funerary urns for the average visitor to appreciate - walls and walls, room after room. We looked at the heavily carved urns then carried on to look at other objects, including some wonderful gold jewellery. I think you would need...More

If you want to see about a thousand boxes for burying the ashes of dead Etruscans this is the place to go. However, I got tired of seeing so many. There are a few other artifacts to be seen, and it they worth seeing. If...More

It is still quite a myth where the Etruscans came from. This museum house a large collection of artifact related to the culture since Volterra was a very important Etruscan town.

I was very disappointed. The museum is located in a lovely 4-storey building, but for the most parts its many rooms consist of row upon row of very similar tombs, more like a place for storage than a venue for visitors. There is very little...More

This is a museum rich in Etruscan artifacts and really worth a visit. The english tour guides are handy, yes, but not all the stuff is in the right place, so sometimes numberings (or audio) are off. This should really be dealt with, as well...More
