“teacher's delight!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

A great collection of Etruscan vases and history displayed. Well worth the visit I thought.Got some amazing pictures to show students. We were even treated to a concert by the Italian Airforce who just happened to be there- nice finish to a great day.

“Etruscan wonders!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

The collection was incredible, what a world of treasures and great info provided for the artifacts. We did find that the objects weren't always arranged chronologically from room to room, and despite having half an hour before closing time we were ushered out. Overall though, definitely worth a visit to learn more about how much the Etruscans gave the Romans

“Interesting Museum”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Visited this museum on Sat 5 July 2014, right at opening time. Entrance fee was 8 euros. Had the place to ourselves for the first half hour or so. There is a vast amount of artifacts on show many of which are in a superb state of preservation. There is a mock up of some Etruscan tombs which was quite interesting and almost all of the information boards are in Italian & English so understanding what is in the cases is not a problem. Very nicely laid out museum. Spent a couple of hours here and was well worth the 8 euros entrance fee.

“THE FORGOTTEN ETRUSCAN MUSEUM BESIDES BORGHESE !”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

At the other end of the Borghese Park is this very interesting museum situated inside an old Villa -Villa Giulia- with three stocks filled with findings from 1000 BC to the end of this very interesting culture which had deep impact on the later roman culture (much more than the roman themselves admit !).This culture was an anti-aggression culture and had also heavy influence from the greeks. Their craftmanship in stone and precious metals like gold ,silver and bronze is well-known and their tombs are often very fine decorated and some of these contained fantastic carved coffins . All this is very fine presented at this museum and remember : Free admittance for us in the retirement stage as for almost all other museums in Rome -ie colosseum and others.
