Very interesting museum with lots of artifacts and objects found in the Etruscan tumbs. One of our highlight were the erotic plates and vases, and of course the winged horses that are incredibly beautiful.
Not giving 5 stars because I would have loved to know more about the Etruscan people in general, not only about the objects on display. I feel like a room or two for introduction would be necessary and provide the right context for visitors.

A must see....Amazing
Oct 2019
Located in the beautiful and peaceful town of Tarquinia this museum houses incredible examples of the ancient Etruscan people. The workmanship of the stone masons on the sarcophagi is truly amazing.....the workmanship on the pottery vessels represents a very high level or skill.
While visiting this facility take some time to walk up the cobbled street and see the the old town center and fountain.

Easy to ride the local bus from Civitavecchia to Tarquinia. So you can do this when your ship is in port for the day. You don’t need a fancy shore excursion for this visit.
What a great place. The Etruscan museum is wonderful, with objects that date back to 9th c BC.

Etruscan history lessons for the heart
Sep 2019 • Solo
What a wonderful display of Etruscan sarcophagi, frescoes, remnants, and the meaningful artifacts recovered from one of the most tomb-rich regions. Brilliant and beautiful, a walk through the 3-stories of “salas,” is thoughtful and humbling. Among the newest additions: the Sala della Cavalli Atali. But my favorite were the sarcophagi. Worthwhile. But a ticket for both the necropolis and museum for maximum benefit: at the time of my visit a ticket to both was $10 eu, and good for 2 visits to each. Suggestion: if you do both, go to the necropolis first, in time early a.m., before it gets too hot. Then the museum, where it is shady.

Arsenal of brilliant antiquity
May 2019
This is where i understood something of the artistic vigour of the Roman civilisation. Here, the rich holdings of the museum can be seen in conjunction with the lavish decoration of so many of the excavated tombs.. The owner, a cardinal was a patron of considerable taste, as shown in the frescoes on the first floor. The building lends itself admirably to the display of the archeological collection. So much evident energy is matched by a degree of refinement. Pride of place goes, on the second floor to the two winged horses made in earthenware that flanked the approach to the main shrine in the town.
