“Definitely Worth a Visit”

Museo Archeologico Nazionale
Ranked #6 of 62 things to do in Spoleto
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 October 2011

A quick visit to this Museum will give the visitor a real insight into the early development of the Umbrian people and the absorption of this region into the growing Roman empire. As fascinating as the history of the Roman Empire is, I also like to find out about the 'pre-Roman' Italians, and that is something that this museum does very well.

There is also a fascinating "Last Supper" fresco extant in one of the rooms of the building which was part of a former convent. Not unlike Da Vinci's much more famous Last Supper in Milan, but with Saint Agnes making an interesting addition to the company.

Also, great views of the amphitheatre from the loggia of the museum.

We found this museum very interesting. The exhibits were very well laid out and there were displays in both Italian and English which obviously helped us a great deal. We visited while the amphitheatre was being set up for the Spoleto Festival but it was still very impressive. While there we were lucky enough to get chatting to a staff member who was very passionate about the displays in the museum and even though he had not much English and we have not much Italian - his enthusiasm really added to our enjoyment of the museum. We learned so much about the history of Spoleto and the surrounding areas while we were there and would consider it a very worthwhile visit for anyone in Spoleto.

I greatly enjoyed the museum and its presentation of life in the city 2,000 years ago. The organization and presentation of their story is very well done. it does not take too long to see it all. I think I spent maybe 90 minutes in the museum before going into the amphitheater - and that was time lingering over the displays and backtracking for cross references. If you enjoy the story of the Roman roots of Umbria then this museum is worth some time.
