The museum is small but its collection of Etruscan art is very good with the artifacts coming mostly from the local archaeological digs. The room containing frescoes from a tomb is not lit usually, so the museum staff turn the lights there you have to...More

There are a lot of Etruscan artifacts here, but virtually no signage and certainly not in English. So you wander around looking at objects at random without understanding exactly what they are. Actually a lot have dates, but not any other information, even in Italian.

The museum has some well preserved Etruscan artifacts. Well laid out, interesting and with some English information, but, most is in Italian. My favourite was the jewellery. Included in the Carta Unica and no booking required.

The vase and amphora collection as well as the Roman coin collection (priceless) is a must to see. Well protected and well displayed in glass cases.

As part of the "Carta Unica", I highly recommend a visit to this museum--located next to the Duomo...very impressive collection of Etruscan items--gold, silver, bronze, sculpture, statuary, etc. Definitely worth a visit!

This is an absolutely great place if you enjoy seeing Fresco. You can see a whole load of 500yr old (or more) wall paintings. And on the way in, you can see the builders tools used to renovate the church some years ago. So why...More

This is a fabulous little museum immediately adjacent to Orvieto's amazing Duomo. It houses a lovely collection of artifacts, mostly recovered from the Etruscan burial grounds at the foot of the cliffs of Orvieto. If you ask, they will take you to the rooms that...More

My brother and I toured this museum and the art was a bit unusual as well as the statues. Most of, if not all the statues were of nudes.
