Really wanted to visit this theatre but in December whenever we passed by seemed to be closed so could only see from the gate. Even so looks very impressive so will try to visit next time.

I'm a fan of small museums and this one has just 3 rooms, plus the Roman theatre outside. The entrance fee is just 2 euros. I was most interested in the bronze age figures and pieces of pottery, but there are also relics from the pre-Roman and Roman eras - including tablets with laws about the sacred woods - which...

From primitive Umbrian culture to Roman dominance to Papal influence... this interesting museum is small, but rich in many elements & creatively presented installations. The Roman Theater & Refectory of Sta. Agatha Monastary hold surprising details... Check out what's for dinner at the last supper!

My husband and I were very impressed with this museum because it had full explanations of the history of the Etruscans in English (and Italian). We had been to 2 other Etruscan Museums in Umbria and this is the one that we learned the most from. It has beautiful artifacts, such as pottery, jewelry and small votive figures. Some of... More

This archeological site was next to our hotel and just unbelievable to see such ancient (Roman) ruins. Some of the steps have been restored to enable the theatre to be used in modern day but the atmosphere is still magical.

Similar to 'Romans' museums the world over. As always, very interesting. Nice to relate the ancient and modern maps. The Romans did here pretty much what they did everywhere else though, so you may have seen most of it before. This museum is better laid out than most I have been to.

Having eventually found the entrance to the Roman Theatre hidden down a side street, we were delighted to discover the associated archeological museum, which is on two floors but easily accessible. The exhibits are well laid out and the whole place is airy, comfortable and visitor-friendly. Best value deal is to buy a Spoleto Card or 'Red Card' valid for... More

The State Archaeological Museum presents the history of Spoleto, the communities that have lived in the region over the years. The museum is housed in the former monastery of St. Agatha which was built on old Roman structures, and is located just off Piazza della Liberta near the Tourism Office. On display are many objects which have been excavated from... More

For anyone interested in the ancient past, this is a real treat. Not only does entry allow full access to the Teatro Romano with its tiered seats and back stage passages but also to a series of well-lit stylishly displayed exhibits on the Romans and the various groups who occupied Umbria, lived there, worshipped there and sometimes fought there. The... More
