Behind the unimposing facade is an extraordinary collection of art, well presented and labeled. The prehistoric section contains an unusual idol and animnal-shaped vase. The Etruscan section is not to be missed. The Egyptian section contains some spectacular objects including a mummy of 4th century BC date wrapped in linen bandages which are inscribed with the longest known Etruscan (yes, Etruscan!) inscription. This alone is worth the price of admission and is a well kept secret on view in a gallery of its own. The newly installed sections about daily life in the Classical world are informative in the extreme. The numismatic section is extensive and interesting. If you are interested in the ancient world in general this is a not to miss museum. There is a garden on the museum grounds with a nice cafe and shop as well which most visitors tend to overlok and miss.
