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!

The museum has a vast collection of archaeological items, especially Etruscan items. Many of these items contain carvings depicting various Gods or Heros of mythology and there were a few cards explaining these which were most useful. They also had a fascinating display (not sure...More

Strongly recommended for its sheer quantity and variety of material and items, as well as a very peaceful and beautiful setting. Rich and interesting, very well explained in all details, it's a discovery for anyone. The folklore exhibition is stunning!

The museum that just keeps giving. We intended to just spend an hour there but three hours later we were still wandering through. Take water and food as you will need it. Make sure that you see the Etruscan bronze chariot on the second floor....More
