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.

Endless funeral relics and vases and coins I'd give this a miss unless Etruscan stuff is your passion

It was a nice visit, rich collection, ask for the audio tour which costs 3 euros but contains a lot of information.
