It is still quite a myth where the Etruscans came from. This museum house a large collection of artifact related to the culture since Volterra was a very important Etruscan town.

There is a lot to see, lots of alabaster urns but so much more. Rooms of Roman coins and metal works. The first floor is a history of Etruscans and the use of alabaster. We had some very helpful staff members explain pieces and answer...More

This is a museum rich in Etruscan artifacts and really worth a visit. The english tour guides are handy, yes, but not all the stuff is in the right place, so sometimes numberings (or audio) are off. This should really be dealt with, as well...More

Most of us know that the Romans dominated ancient Italy but a trip to the Etruscan Museum in Volterra will give you a good sense of the rich culture that paralleled that of the Romans. The burial urns are beautifully carved and the way the...More

We came over to Volterra only for this museum while we were travelling from Lucca to San Gimignano. Volterra and this museum absolutely deserve to visit.
