We were in Ferrara on a day trip from Bologna and decided to visit this Museum on the basis of TA Reviews. We knew nothing about the collection or excavations at Spina but came out feeling we had learnt a lot .

This museum contains a range of Etruscan Amphorae, Kraters and otter interesting items from Etruscan tombs. The lighting is poor but good enough.

The museum focuses on the Necropolis di Spina, between Ferrara and the sea in the delta of the Po. The findings are amazing and exceedingly well displayed in a lovely place in via Settembre. The Greeks were very influential and the restored pots, and the jewellery are astounding the finds trace through the Estruscan and Celtic influemces and one builds... More

Sorry, my review is close))) So some questions and responses about this place: 1. Is it good? - NO!!! It is amazing and very impressive (of course if... More

We too were amazed at the quantity and quality of the objects on show at this museum. It is a treasure trove of Greek and Etruscan pottery and jewelry from the ancient city of Spina, with the highlights being some wonderful Attic vases. Everything was very well displayed in a spacious old palazzo and, unlike in some other Italian museums,... More

We were received very friendly and shown some very special thins. There is a exposition about the lost Etruscan town Spina which was very good.

Amazing exhibition of Ancient Greek city spina. Don't loose the opportunity to see a large collection of exquisite Etruscan-Greek red-figure Attic terracotta vases, the museum testifies to the ancient archaeological history of the whole province!

So many treasures from the earliest settlements in the Po Valley. The scale and quality of the artefacts displayed - especially the Greek pottery and the gold jewellery - is amazing. Surprising because we did not expect to find such a collection in a small (but wonderful and beautiful) city like Ferrara. The presentation of everything is exceptional.

Incredibile collection of Etruscan exhibits in the beautiful setting of a Renaissance Palace, - so much to see here, Renaissance frescos, fabulous Attic vases, gold and amber Etruscan jewellery, Would you believe that they have one of the largest collections of Attic vases here outside of Greece due to the trading that went on between the Etruscan town on Spina...
