Similar to 'Romans' museums the world over. As always, very interesting. Nice to relate the ancient and modern maps. The Romans did here pretty much what they did everywhere else though, so you may have seen most of it before. This museum is better laid out than most I have been to.

Having eventually found the entrance to the Roman Theatre hidden down a side street, we were delighted to discover the associated archeological museum, which is on two floors but easily accessible. The exhibits are well laid out and the whole place is airy, comfortable and visitor-friendly. Best value deal is to buy a Spoleto Card or 'Red Card' valid for... More

The State Archaeological Museum presents the history of Spoleto, the communities that have lived in the region over the years. The museum is housed in the former monastery of St. Agatha which was built on old Roman structures, and is located just off Piazza della Liberta near the Tourism Office. On display are many objects which have been excavated from... More

For anyone interested in the ancient past, this is a real treat. Not only does entry allow full access to the Teatro Romano with its tiered seats and back stage passages but also to a series of well-lit stylishly displayed exhibits on the Romans and the various groups who occupied Umbria, lived there, worshipped there and sometimes fought there. The... More

Must see while in Spoleto. The museum contains a roman theatre 70m in diameter (beautiful) + the museum itself full of artefacts starting from Bronze age. It is not that small as you might think from some reviews - it has full 3 floors full of artefacts. There are extensive explanations also in English not just about the objects but... More

The Museo Archeologico Nazionale Di Spoleto is a must see wnhen in Spoleto. You can view the amphitheatre from the Piazza Liberta, but it is worth spending the time to go through the museum. Entry is part of the Spoleto Pass, which gives you access to 7 historic sites and free public transit for a week.

Renovation was going on during our visit. Fun to watch the workers painstakingly brushing the cracks and repairing.

Although the findings are not as numerous as the ones you can admire in the homonymous Museum in Orvieto, this place looks quite well organized, and very much informative about local history. Beautiful are the marble sculptures found during the Roman theater excavations, such the bust of a young Augustus, and a delicate slender young female figure probably of Attica... More
