A visit to this museum was the highlight of our trip in Perugia. They should really promote the Umbrian Region a lot more. We stayed a couple of hours in this museum as it has a vast collection. I highly recommend it.
If you want to see some more of Etruskian life and history, then the national museo is a must. Next to Etruskian pottery, glassworks and tools, you will find there a preserved cemetary of an Etruskian family. A real must see!
