There is a lot to see, lots of alabaster urns but so much more. Rooms of Roman coins and metal works. The first floor is a history of Etruscans and the use of alabaster. We had some very helpful staff members explain pieces and answer...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

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.
