We recently stumbled on this museum by chance while based in Chianciano Terme with our Italian tour. Instead of joining our group for a visit to Rome, (on an extremely hot day) we took a leisurely walk around the old town and then saw a...More

A pleasant and informative small museum which provides a glimpse of life in Toscany more than 2000 years ago. Numerous articles from the period and reasonable recreation of life at hat time. One would wish a larger number of translated texts and information...nonetheless 1:30 hour...More

This is a fantastic museum! It is not big but definitely worth visiting. The Etruscans are our ancestors from 2,500 years ago and it is incredible what they were doing then. We had a guide which made it even better. So glad we went!
