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

Must see while in Spoleto. The museum contains a roman theatre 70m in diameter (beautiful) + the museum itself full of artefacts starting from Bronze age. It is not that small as you might think from some reviews - it has full 3 floors full of artefacts. There are extensive explanations also in English not just about the objects but... More

The Museo Archeologico Nazionale Di Spoleto is a must see wnhen in Spoleto. You can view the amphitheatre from the Piazza Liberta, but it is worth spending the time to go through the museum. Entry is part of the Spoleto Pass, which gives you access to 7 historic sites and free public transit for a week.

Renovation was going on during our visit. Fun to watch the workers painstakingly brushing the cracks and repairing.

Although the findings are not as numerous as the ones you can admire in the homonymous Museum in Orvieto, this place looks quite well organized, and very much informative about local history. Beautiful are the marble sculptures found during the Roman theater excavations, such the bust of a young Augustus, and a delicate slender young female figure probably of Attica... More

Great amphitheatre in good condition. For just 4 euros I had the place to myself. Wonderful example of Roman amphitheatre with examples of artefacts left at funeral sites.

This is a rather small but well kept museum with some very nice and interesting artefacts from different periods of Umbrian history. Always nice to see something but only Roman or Greek history!

I love museums, but they wear me out fast. This one is compact and purposeful in its displays of Spoleto's history. Lots of artifacts, in fact, are those of daily life—small decorative items, jewelry, and such survived. As I studied some of these small pieces—pins and such—I wondered if they, like our misplaced earrings and such, were lost by someone... More
