We called in here purely by accident, we looked through the doorway of the courtyard on the way back to the car park. The lady at the entrance was very helpful and happy and because we had already paid for the Torre Grande ticket our entrance was free. There is a small ceramics display and a smaller exhibit about the... More

My wife and I spent almost two hours in this museum. What a blessing that one gentleman collected and kept al these artefacts for later generations. As an engineer by education I wondered how these craftsmen 2000 years ago managed to make all these beautiful artefacts.

The museum was well worth our visit. It has a good collection of regional Etruscan material culture. Although the collection is dominated by the large number of funerary urns, there were enough other objects to hold our interest. Two highlights of the collection on display are the statue "The Shadow of the Evening" and the Urn of the Married Couple.... More

Volterra is another nice city, it's from the same old San Gimignano period and, at that time probably Volterra was more interesting because close to the seaside; the museum is interesting to see because most of our villages like Volterra, San Gimingnano etc. are from Etruschi Period

Located at almost the opposite end of town from the Duomo, this museum was three stories of pottery, cast metal, and stone funerary urns. Admission to the single museum was 8E per person (10E for a combo ticket that includes 2 other museums), or 20E for Family ticket to all three. The gift shop was a bit "old school" but... More
