A small, under-visited museum just off the main square. The museum starts with Etruscan artifacts including a fantastic large Etruscan stone door and pottery and then includes paintings.

This is a great little museum with its own rediscovered Caravaggio, and also beautifully set out Della Robbia terracottas and interesting Etruscan objects. Well worth a visit.
