If you want to get an overview of the history of the city this is the place to come. Set out in about 30 separate rooms it takes you from Etruscan time to modern day with a very good audio guide. Some of the rooms...More
This museum was better than we expected...perhaps it’s only been recently updated/renovated??...puzzled by fact that there haven’t been many reviews since 2017? It was also so very quiet in the mid afternoon (a Thursday)...it’s 10 Euro but 8 if you’re over 70 or a teacher....More
We visited here by chance. 10 Euro admission fee is expensive for what is on display. It was mostly empty and rooms did not flow well. All staff we encountered were unfriendly and it seemed we were an inconvience. Why they require a copy of...More
Expecting some good things of an interactive museum of a great city, we happily paid 10 Euro entrance fee. No one else at the museum and it soon became clear. Artefacts were few and far between with poor explanation. An audio guide gave some brief...More

Expensive entry at 10€, and certainly not worth that if you don’t speak Italian. I declined the English audio guide (which I now notice another reviewer mentioned was free - that wasn’t explained to me) as I like to take my time and read about...More
Museum of the History of Bologna was really nice looking museum! It was really clean and modern looking. However, there was nearly no text in english, so it's better to take audioguide when buying tickets (audioguide in english is free)
Visited it last Sunday, it seemed an excellent exhibition with lots of information, but although my Italian is reasonably good, it was hard work making my way through it. I got the audio guide but while it gave information on each room, it was much...More
This is a nicely-put together museum with a well-thought-out route through an old palace, charting the history of Bologna (in chronological order) with modern displays and interesting exhibits. It’s just a pity many of the interactive elements have broken since they were installed - so...More
