Light, airy, spacious, with a modern feel (it was only reopened a few years ago), full of variety, with well-lit, uncluttered displays, not patronising, not intimidating, not claustrophobic, helpful and intelligent people working there, it's nearly perfect... The only possible negative is that it's a ten or fifteen minute walk from the centre. I got a taxi. The person in... More

If you are on perugia or Umbria this museum is a must visit. It is well laid out with a number of different exhibitions. My favourites were the Etruscan and prehistoric sections. The views from the museum and just to sit in the solitude of history are worth the visit alone.

While there is a lot to see at the Archeological Museum, the exhibition is at times not very interesting and a leaflet/guide book would have been very helpful. At least, the information about the objects being exhibited should have been available also in English not just Italian throughout.

If you are just a little interested in history, you should go to this nice museum. It covers all ages of Perugia, but the most impressing and charming part is the Collection af etruscan artifacts - from tombstones and wagons of war, to delicate jewellery and pottery. In Rome or Firenze this museum would be crowded, but here in Perugia... More

and they had pages written in many languages for each part of the museum, very helpful. also, catacombs underneath, don't miss them. Off the beaten path, we got directions from our B&B hostess, never would have seen it otherwise.

Having spent several enchanted hours in the Archeological Museum in Naples, I was expecting something similar here and I was a little disappointed. It’s a well organized museum, hosted in a former Convent. Mainly prehistoric, Etruscan and Umbrian findings. A great deal of photography and good explanation of periods and happenings. Funerary urns, sarcophaghi and Etruscan bronzes. Don’t miss the... More

What an interesting museum. Our host recommended we visit and he was correct. The museum shows the history of humans from the Neanderthal to medieval times. A great history lesson for young and old alike. I highly recommend a visit.
