We came over to Volterra only for this museum while we were travelling from Lucca to San Gimignano. Volterra and this museum absolutely deserve to visit.

This museum is the go to place for Etruscan culture. And, it is in a great little town that has much more to offer, without the scrum that is San G.

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.

A facinating museum overflowing with wonderous artefacts. Rooms filled with ceramics, jewellery all found in the burial sites. One of the most important Etruscan museums in Italy.
