About
The museum has two collections. The first is dedicated to Etruscan period: Attic kraters, bronze fibulae decorated with one of the earliest representations of boxing in Etruscan words, urns and vases. The second shows works of important artists from Middle Ages to Baroque: Marco Romano; Giacomo Pacchierotto; Alessandro Casolani and his family. An essential part of the visit to the Museum is in the church "Collegiata di Santa Maria Assunta."

Great Out of the Way Etruscan Museum on the way to Volterra
Oct 2016 • Couples
As my wife and I left Castello Di Casole to visit Volterra, we passed a sign for Casole d'Elsa which my cousin (who lives in Siena) had told us had a great Etruscan museum that few people take the time to go and see. I had wanted to go to Volterra because of their Etruscan museum as well as for their Roman theater ruins so we decided it was worth spending a couple of hours on the way to Volterra in the little hill top town of Casole d'Elsa to visit this museum. It was well worth the time and effort to see the many fine funerary artifacts and decorative pieces that had been unearthed in the region and placed into the museum. I highly recommend this stop if you are interested in the Etruscans or ancient history and art in general. Combined with the great museum in Volterra, these make a very comprehensive showing of Etruscan art and life.

Incredible historic art of Siena, full rooms of frescoes and paintings. Takes about 1 hour to go through and is worth it.

If you are into archeology then this is a treat for you. We visited as we were touring round the hill top towns in area. We enjoyed our visit.

Interesting but not exciting

We had a good look round and there are many interesting sights but they're not very exciting. Something for the keen person

We have had the chance to visit the museum during a private opening for our group and were amazed by the amount of artefacts displayed in the museum of such a little village!

a small museum, beautiful art, very kind and knowledgeable personnel.
two rooms about the Etrurians, specially the ones from the area and Volterra: their stone portraits look quite different from those around Latium (much more south).
And some splendid rooms with art from 1200 to 1600. Incredible, vibrant colors and gold.
some art was around here, in the several churches, some was in the deposits of the Pinacoteca of Siena. Really worth going, and taking those reluctant ones in your family: it is small, inexpensive, and their eyes will thank you for the rest of their life.
