The collection is rich and priceless, but the organization of museum doesn't worth the showpieces.It is very old styled, and I suppose not interesting for children or people who aren't keen on history. They have all to make a great fascinating museum! And definitely translation needed, all descriptions are in Italian only.

The museum was reasonably interesting but we probably only spent about half an hour there. None of the explanations/leaflets were in English, the staff on the day, didn't speak much English and displays are very traditional. However there are a lot of red and black vases and lots of coins.
