This Museum is highly recommended. It is laid out in an interesting way with exhibits that bring to life the Bologna's history from the Etruscans to current times.

“Worth the stop if you have a couple of days--just to get perspective”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Great rich history of a great rich historical city. Get the audio guide and be ready to be surprised. The videos in some of the displays cycle around to english if you are patient--too bad they are not interactive. Alas almost nothing about the history of food though.

“Historical Museum in a Contemporary Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

This museum was included in the Bologna card that we purchased at the Tourist Center in the Piazza Maggiore. The traditional-looking façade is transformed once you walk inside into a modern, interactive museum tracing the history of the city from its earliest beginnings until today. There are audio-guides and sub-titled films in English. The displays are imaginative and cater to all ages. Overall, it is a good introduction to the city.

“worthy to make it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

We spent few hours in visiting this. It was educational and instructivr with many detailed explanations about the history of bologna. We would have easily spent many more hours in it but we had to rush to another visit we had booked in advance. Bologna is charming, sweet, foody and full of culture.
